Weather in Canada

In Canada, there are four seasons: spring, summer, autumn (fall) and winter.

Summer lasts from around June to September and the weather varies from warm to hot, with daytime temperatures between 20 and 35 degrees Celsius (68 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher. In southern Ontario and Quebec, it can often be very humid.

Fall and spring are transition seasons. This means that it starts to get colder in the fall and starts to get warmer in the spring. It is usually marked with a lot of rain.

Winter is very cold in most places with temperatures often below zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Snow covers the ground from around November or December to March or April, and the wind chill makes it feel like much colder than what the temperature is. Depending on where you are immigrating from, you may be quite surprised by the cold and snow during your first Canadian winter. Be sure to buy a good quality winter coat, boots, gloves and a hat to keep you warm. With the right clothing, you will be prepared to enjoy the unique beauty of a Canadian winter.
