City Essentials

Canada’s immense size entails a wide range of climatic zones, so the best time to visit depends on where you're heading.

For city explorations and outdoor activities, the best time is during summer and early autumn – from June to October – when the weather is warm. However, those looking to partake in winter sports such as skiing or snowboarding should consider visiting from November to March. Remember, Canadian winters can be severe, particularly in the north and the prairies.


Canada's nightlife scene is as diverse as the country itself. From the lively pubs of Halifax to the trendy clubs of Montreal, there's something for everyone.

In cities like Toronto and Vancouver, visitors can enjoy world-class theatre performances, concerts, and sporting events. If craft beverages are your preference, head to one of the many brewpubs in Victoria, BC, for an array of artisan beers.

Montreal is renowned for its vibrant nightlife, with a vast range of clubs, bars, and live music venues. For those seeking a laidback night out, try a ferry ride to Granville Island in Vancouver for night markets, breweries, and restaurants.

Calgary, famous for its annual Stampede, offers a unique taste of Western Canada with its country music bars and lively cowboy culture.
