Climate and weather

In most parts of the world, Canada is associated with snow and extremely cold weather. In fact, the Canadian climate varies greatly from one region to another and from one season to another.

To help you plan your trip, please refer to the Canadian Weather Office web site for detailed information on Canadian climate and weather.

An important detail: temperatures are shown in degrees Celsius (°C). Don't confuse these with degrees Fahrenheit (°F) used in the United States and elsewhere! A winter temperature of 0°C is the same as 32°F. And if meteorologists forecast 32°C in summer, that's the same as 90°F!
