You will experience a different climate in different parts of Canada. Basically, Canadian people living in areas situated near to the U.S. border face four distinct seasons. If we talk about the temperature, it goes up to 35 degrees Celsius in summer, and on the other side, and down to negative 25 degrees Celsius in the winter. The spring is more temperate, with cooler weather.

The climate is very different during winter months, especially in norther areas. However, the infrastructure in Canada is designed to fend off these cold periods thanks to strong heating in homes and public transportation, snow plows, and much more.
Strange Facts About The Climate In Canada
There is a strange fact that we must mention; otherwise, the article will be considered as an incomplete one.
South Alberta Is Called ‘Chinook’ Capital
During the winter, you might be surprised to know that the temperature can go up to 41 degrees celsius in South Alberta. This happens because of hurricane-force winds coming off the Rocky Mountains speed into the area at 120 km/h, resulting in a sharp rise in temperature. But this only occurs for a short period before the temperate drops again. This wind is called “Chinook” and is only seen in southern Alberta, which is why this place is called the “Chinook” capital.
