Canada Day crowds in the capital will face the challenge of keeping hydrated in temperatures that are forecast to peak at 36 C, with a humidex of 47 and a UV index of 10, or "very high".

As the heat wave continues, it's clear we expect the number of deaths attributable to the heat to rise.

Montreal health officials said there have been 12 heat-related deaths since the weekend, while authorities in the Eastern Townships region east of Montreal are attributing another five deaths to the weather.

Canada Day was supposed to start out sunny in the morning, turning to a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon, with a 30 per cent chance of showers.

"If you're doing well, make sure you check on those who may be more vulnerable - any friends and family, those who are living alone", Ms. Hobelman said.

To prevent heat stress during a heat alert, Dr. Strang suggests to stay in a shaded, cool or air-conditioned area, drink plenty of water, wear light-coloured clothing and to not leave anyone or any animal unattended in vehicles.
