The average temperature in winter and summer varies by location.
Winters can be cold in many regions of the country, especially in the interior provinces and in the prairies, where a continental climate is experienced, with average daily temperatures of -15 ° C, but can reach below -40 ° C.
In regions without coasts, snow can cover the ground for almost six months (more in the north). The coast of British Columbia enjoys a temperate climate, with a warmer but rainy winter.
In the summers on the east and west coasts, the average temperatures generally do not exceed 20 ° C, while between the coasts, the maximum average temperature in summer oscillates between 25 and 30 ° C, with occasional heat waves in the interior that exceed 40 ° C. In some cases, in the summer months, and due to the high humidity levels, the thermal sensation is much higher than what the thermometer indicates.
