About the Event

Join us on February 26, 2022!

The Coldest Night of the Year is a super-fun, family-friendly fundraising walk that supports local charity partners who provide essential care and service for people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger.


CNOY is a moment each year when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home to shine a light of welcome and compassion in their communities. Remarkably, the Coldest Night of the Year has raised over $43,500,000 in 149 communities across Canada since it began in 2011. Learn more about our history.

CNOY Toques

Our thanks for a fundraising job well done!

When you go the extra mile and fundraise ($150 for adults, $75 for youth under 17 or under) we'll celebrate your efforts with an oh-so-comfy 2022 CNOY Toque.


Covid Preparedness

Your safety is no joke.

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that things can change quickly! Covid-related health risks and operational challenges may not permit us to assemble in large groups as planned. If provincial, municipal or local restrictions take effect, we'll be ready to adjust – we will communicate with you directly and help you gather safely in smaller, covid-friendly teams (or walk individually).
