When To Go to Canada

Well you can visit Canada at any time of year. However, reports say that most people arrive in summer when temperatures are pleasant and much of the action moves outdoors. In southern Canada, it generally refers to the period between Victoria Day and Labour Day. In the northern regions, however, summer starts as late as mid-June and ends, often abruptly, with the first snowfall in early to mid-September.

Moreover, March to May and September to October bring fewer tourists and often surprisingly pleasant weather. Fall, which finds forests cloaked in a spectacular mantle of color, is a great time to visit. On the other hand, Canadian winters are long, cold and dark. Your explorations are pretty much limited to the ski resorts and cities. Qu├ębec City, Toronto and Winnipeg are among those cities hosting big winter carnivals.
