Eighteen of the deaths occurred in Montreal, where the temperature Thursday was expected to climb to 113 degrees Fahrenheit with humidity.

The victims who succumbed to the heat were between the ages of 50 and 85 and did not have air conditioning in their residences and lived alone in apartments, officials said. "Heat risk in an urban setting is a combination of medical, social and environmental exposures".

According to the Ministry, numerous dead were over 65 years of age and had physical or mental health problems.

There are also micro heat islands throughout the city, particularly in some of the poorer areas, he added. 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.

And late Wednesday two more deaths blamed on the heat were recorded in a Montreal suburb, Radio Canada reported.

Environment Canada lifted heat warnings for the regions, including Quebec, for the next several days.

But Ontario does not track heat related deaths in the same way as Quebec and does not report on potential causes of death without a coroner's investigation.

While the stifling weather has blanketed other parts of the country, no deaths have been reported elsewhere, but that may be because various jurisdictions have different ways of gathering data on heat-related fatalities.
