Yes, it's so damn cold here in Canada that we can't have plumbing in 98% of the country. Temperatures ranging from about 20-40Â°C (77-104Â°F) during the summer. we freeze our sorry little lives away.But Seriously: We have GREAT summers, and not so good Winters.... If you don't want constant snow stick to somewhere like BC, winter months are more of a rainy season. If you like skiing (of course during the winter I mean) stay somewhere like Calgary, AB (only an hour away from mountains) Alberta is the place to be.

Canada is a vast country and in the very north it can be cold all year round. In the summer the southern parts have a summer that is hot at times 30 degrees at times. Some places get very cold in winter -30 degrees at times.Vancouver is a good place to go if you don't like cold as it does not ever get very cold. You also have the advantage that it is near mountains so if you want to see snow or participate in snow sports you can. In Vancouver it does rain for a lot of the winter but never gets below 0 degrees for long.

I live in Edmonton, Alberta and it's definitely not THAT cold. We have four distinct seasons - summer is often hot and dry, with thunderstorms almost every night in July. Sping is warm, with rain. Fall is beautiful and can be very hot at times. Winter is cold, but it doesn't get that reeeally cold feeling for more than a couple of weeks in January or February. It's nice to have variety with the seasons. I've travelled all over Alberta, and can tell you that it's all relatively similar to Edmonton.
I live in Southern Ontario - we have pretty Spring weather, long, hot summers, amazing Autumns with beautiful colours and we have cold, crisp winters!I think this is a great place to live. My home of St Thomas is less than 2 hours from Toronto, Buffalo, Detroit, Niagara Falls and the town where I live (St Thomas) has a pretty good economy, good schools, a hospital, Municipal Airport, Hockey Arenas (Yeah!) and is a great place to live and raise a family. _http://www.discover-southern-ontario.comâ€¦Check out my favourite site - _http://www.discover-southern-ontario.comâ€¦
Not cold like having snow all year round, but it is basicly quite cold in sumer, like turning aircon at a low degree in south east asia.That's what makes our country special, it's so cold.The best place to move to for a person that hates cold weather is Vancouver, since it's the warmest city, but even there has snow during winter.The best place for a person that loves cold weather is Grise Fiord in Ellesmere island, the northern most island in Canada.

Even in the Northwest Territories it gets warm in the summer. oyThe average temperature in the southern part of the NWT in July is 21C or 70F and in the ARCTIC zone the average in the summer is 10C or 50F.
NOT AT ALL ! We have all four seasons .Infact border american cities share the same temps as us. LIke New york ,detroit etc .Its sad that american education is only about america and not about the rest of the worldYEs we own air conditioner in our homes and cars as well !!!
Up until about five years ago, some people in my area are reported to have seen cars with US license plates driving up here with skis on their roof racks in May or even June!The truth is that most Canadian cities are very similar to Northern US cities. Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec City all have weather similar to Detroit, Buffalo, or Boston. We go from August dog days at 90F down to cold winters at 5F. With the wind chill factor, it often feels colder.Keep in mind that Canada spans from the Atlantic to the Pacific and all the way up to the Arctic Circle. The northen cities will usually have a cooler summer and colder winter. The exception being Vancouver, BC which has weather much more like Seattle. They get warm summers, but not as warm as the rest of Canada and they are cool in winter but almost never snows, more often rainy or overcast.So what part of Canada would be the best place to move to? I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Here are some examples...Choose the quote that best meets your situation.British Columbia (Vancouver)======================="I want to live in a place with great weather with a lot of energy. A place with many things to do year round. However, I know it will be very costly and so I am prepared for the extra expenses."Alberta (Calgary)=============="I want a place with lots of job opportunities, that pays well, and is not far from the mountains so I can go skiing or hiking. The housing costs may be a bit high because of the amount of people showing up here looking for work and the shortage of homes available, but I don't need much...maybe a studio apartment. I don't mind the cold that can show up in a prairie winter."Ontario (Toronto area)=================="I'm looking for a home that is near everything, that has a decent public transit system, not too far from the US border. I can live in the suburbs where it is a bit less expensive for housing and commute to work, and the jobs are available in various fields."Quebec (Montreal)==============="I want a place that has an old European style. I speak French or can pick up foreign languages quite easily. I like to party hard on weekends and want a place which offers a good atmosphere. I can commute in because the transit system is great, but you can easily find affordable housing. I can even buy a home outside of town and the mortgage payments won't break me."Maritimes (Halifax, Fredericton, Moncton, St. John's)======================================â€¦"I want a place that is near the coast, that is really inexpensive, and has a nice friendly atmosphere...a place where people know you and say a friendly word when they see you. I know that jobs are a little harder to come by, but my skills are in demand and I can easily find something either in my line of work, or something I can do from a home office by tele-commuting."IMPORTANT: These are by far not the only cities in Canada. I did not mention Regina, Sakatoon, Winnipeg, Edmonton, way too many others to mention. You should look around at what you want in terms of costs, job opportunities, and climate, then see what each city has to offer.
