Fredericton’s out-of-the-cold shelter is still set to close at the end of the month even as city officials are seeking a long-term fix.

City council sent the province a rather urgent letter last month asking for a “coherent plan” for the shelter as of April 1, and for the fall.

Fredericton Mayor Mike O’Brien said he hasn’t heard back from the provincial government and there are just a couple of weeks left until the temporary overnight shelter at 791 Brunswick St. is set to shut its doors.
