In Canada, seven times increased the number of dead from the heat

Quebec health officials say at least 50 people are now believed to have died from heat-related complications.

Most of the victims in Montreal were men in their 50s or older, and living in vulnerable conditions without air conditioning, regional public health director Mylene Drouin has said.

Charlebois, meanwhile, was asked about complaints from patients groups and health workers that some facilities are not equipped with air conditioning.

"If you know people with respiratory problems or people who are elderly, don't hesitate to visit them or give them a phone call to see if they need anything", she said at a committee meeting.

"Montreal is huge heat island", he said, referring to an environmental phenomenon caused by a lack of vegetation and an abundance of concrete.

Heat warnings were in effect across southern Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic region of the country, but temperatures were expected to drop overnight.

The remaining 16 deaths occurred in other parts of the French-speaking province. Numerous victims suffered from chronic health issues or mental illnesses and lived in areas known as 'heat island, ' - regions prone to higher temperatures due to a lack of vegetation.

The heat wave began last Friday and the death toll has increased every day this week.

No deaths had been reported for the same period in the neighbouring province of Ontario, which has also sizzled under extremely high temperatures.
