Canada - Climate


Average winter and summer temperatures across Canada vary depending on the location.

Winters can be harsh in many regions of the country, particularly in the interior and Prairie provinces, which experience a continental climate, where daily average temperatures are near −15 °C  but can drop below −40 °C with severe wind chills.

In non-coastal regions, snow can cover the ground almost six months of the year even more in the north. Coastal British Columbia is an exception and enjoys a temperate climate with a mild and rainy winter.

On the east and west coast, average high temperatures are generally in the low 20s °C, while between the coasts the average summer high temperature ranges from 25 to 30 °C, with occasional extreme heat in some interior locations exceeding 40 °C.
