Environment Canada lifted heat warnings Friday, despite expectations that temperatures will once again rise early next week.

"While we are an advanced industrialized economy, these deaths reflect that there are serious social inequalities", he said, adding that many wealthy countries the world over had been hit by heat waves associated with climate change.

Thirty-three people have died in a heat wave that has baked the southern part of the Canadian province of Quebec.

"The level of danger remains high, despite a decrease in humidity level",- said the representative of service of emergency Canada Stefan Oberhoff. The other victims were reported in the southwest of the French-Canadian province.

Officials are advising people in Quebec to drink plenty of water and to check in on neighbours or relatives and get them to an air-conditioned place, especially elders with medical conditions. "Obviously when we get there and the person may have passed, they're very rarely already with family".
