Weather in Canada
The diversity of Canada's climate gives Canadians many options for recreation during four distinct seasons: summer, fall, winter, and spring. Popular outdoor leisure activities include fishing, boating, camping, skiing, snowmobiling, hockey, and ice skating.
Canada's climate is diverse due to its large geographical area. Located north of the Equator, it may be colder than many immigrants are used to. Almost every region's temperature drops below the freezing temperature in winter. The average high temperature in the summer is 35 Celsius and -25 Celsius in the winter. But because of the size of Canada and its diverse geography, the climate varies considerable from region to region.
There are 8 distinct climate regions in Canada.
Canada Cares about the Environment
Concerns about the health and sustainability of the environment are growing in the mindset of Canadians. Most municipalities provide weekly recycling and composting pick-up services to Canadian households. Raising consciousness about environmental issues is an integral part of the curriculum taught in elementary and secondary schools and the environment is a high profile political portfolio at the Federal, provincial, and municipal levels of government. The Canadian Government has developed many programs and policies, funds scientific research, and partners with other countries and international environmental organizations to protect the environment.
