When to Go to Canada

Summertime has the most pleasant weather, and the streets are alive with locals and tourists. Some of the main cultural events happen during the summer, like the Montréal Jazz Festival and or Toronto’s Luminato light festival. Spring and fall have slightly lower temperatures but fewer crowds and better rates for both hotels and transportation. Winter is ideal for fans of snow-based sports.
