157Walkers28Teams

WOW! We cannot thank everyone enough for your very generous support of the YWCA Niagara Region and our West Niagara Affordable Housing Program. You all have chosen to change lives and support some of the most vulnerable in our community. You are amazing. THANK YOU.


It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us (virtually) on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!

Community Sponsors

West Niagara (YWCA Niagara Region) is super grateful for our fantastic 2021 sponsors! View all sponsors >

Event Day Details

Save the date - Event Day is February 20, 2021!

CNOY West Niagara raises funds and supports for the YW's West Niagara Affordable Housing program that serves families facing homelessness in West Niagara.

Toque Pick-Up Times

Walkers who raise $150+ (adults 18 and over) or $75 (children/youth 17 and under) will receive a CNOY toque as a thank you!


We want to make this as easy for you as possible! So our YW CNOY committee will be dropping off toques to all of our TEAM CAPTAINS to distribute to their teammates. Anyone not in a team, our YW CNOY committee will distribute to you.


Or you can pick up from our YW emergency shelter at 183 King St. St. Catharines, ON from Tuesday, February 16th to Saturday, February 20th.


We are working on a Grimsby pick-up location if needed as well. Feel free to fill out your information in our survey or connect with Arienne with any questions or details: agood@ywcaniagararegion.ca


Have questions? Visit our FAQ section!

Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized walk! Here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):


  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • We're working on a virtual celebration on February 20th. Time TBD.
  • Be safe and have fun!

About YWCA Niagara Region

The goal of YWCA's West Niagara Affordable Housing program is to provide transitional supportive housing to all of West Niagara, which will lead individuals to self-sufficiency within the time frame of one to three years.


Together with our partners, we provide supportive programming and housing solutions to individuals who are committed to attaining self-sufficiency. Our partners include community organizations, individuals, service providers and the faith community as well as residential clients.


Join the only Coldest Night of the Year event in West Niagara. Walk with us.
