When to go to Canada

Choosing a time to go can be as hard as choosing where to go to. If you know where you are going and what you want to do then this will have bearing on the time of year to visit.

Canadian weather changes dramatically, especially at the start and end of the winter months (end of October to the end of March). British Columbia offers a more temperate climate and a milder winter, but the territories, Newfoundland and Labrador, and northern areas of Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec have longer winters.

Some tourist attractions, especially in the Atlantic Provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador, only open between June and September.

Most special events, including the Calgary Stampede, are held in the summer months but there are also some spectacular attractions and events to see during the winter months such as the Quebec Winter Carnival in February.

Check to see what events are on and what tourist attractions are open when planning on visiting.
