As a result, general climatic situation range from the severe cold feature of the Arctic regions to the temperate temperatures of more southerly latitudes.

Indeed, the winters can be harsh in many regions of the country, with risks of blizzards  and ice storms  and temperatures reaching lows of -50°C in the far North. ( Southwestern British Columbia is a well-known exception.) In the most densely populated regions, summers range from mild to quite hot, attaining highs of well over 30°C in Montreal and 15°C even in Iqualuit , Nunavut . In Vancouver, temperatures usually remain stable at around 5-25°C year round, whereas in Calgary they can drop to -30°C in the winter and attain a high of 30°C in the summer. In the great lakes region, the most heavily populated area in the country, temperatures can range from -30°C to 35°C. The country experiences four distinct seasons . .
