Visit Canada

Best Time To Go

  • Skiing: Canada offers some of the most idyllic ski resorts in the world, such as Whistler and Banff. For the best snow conditions, visiting resorts such as Whistler and Banff during late-January to March is best. For the best prices on accommodation and ski tickets, travel during late December or early April.
  • The Maritimes: The Maritimes, Canada’s most eastern provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island), offer some amazing historical and cultural activities. Famous for their seafood and abundance of national parks, the Maritimes are best experienced between October and December when Autumn is in full swing.
  • Niagara Falls: For the best weather conditions, visit Niagara Falls from mid May until mid September. The peak season for Niagara Falls is in July and August so avoid these times for cheaper prices.
  • The Rocky Mountains: A World Heritage Site, the Canadian Rockies are one of the most spectacular places to visit. Travelling during June and September will mean experiencing the Rocky Mountains at their most warm and picturesque. If you’re hoping to hike with little crowds, visit during early June or September.

There is also anAirport Circulator, the LINK Train, at Toronto Pearson International Airport. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is wheelchair-accessible. It is free of cost.

Weather

To dodge peak season (around Christmas, New Year, and early January), visit form late September to early December or February to April. You’ll still enjoy sublime weather, but with fewer crowds. Sydney’s winter low season (June-August) brings cooler days but hotter hotel deals.
