Visitors from around the world come to discover Canada’s distinct seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall. Each season brings changing landscapes and temperatures. In the winter months from December to March, many parts of Canada receive abundant snowfall, and people enjoy winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. Winter festivals across the country celebrate the season with snow sculptures and winter activities like tobogganing. In the spring, Canada’s cities come alive as temperatures start to rise. Flowers bloom, parks fill up with visitors and restaurants open their terraces for outdoor drinks and dining.
