Montreal's civil services have announced the introduction of measures aimed at ensuring the well-being and safety of residents, including a door-to-door operation created to reach at-risk people and to provide prevention advice in certain areas.

A NUMBER of people have died because of a heatwave in central and eastern Canada.

Montreal city hall unveiled an "extreme heat" plan on Tuesday that includes distributing water to groups working with the homeless.

"My thoughts are with the loved ones of those who have died in Quebec during this heat wave", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter.

Firefighters are going door-to-door to check on at-risk residents in Montreal and health officials have set up drop-in cooling centres in the city to offer respite from sizzling temperatures. Inland communities are hit harder than those along the coast.

Mayor Valérie Plante urged people to check on vulnerable neighbours, including seniors.

"Usually when we get heat events it only lasts two or four days", Ms. Hobelman said.

A 30-year-old man also collapsed running a race in Wilmington, New York, after his internal temperature reached an estimated 108 degrees Fahrenheit, reports CNN.
