    People in Canada are actually very lucky when it comes to whether we get to experience four distinct seasons spring bloom, spring, summer heat in April through September with temperatures as high as 25 to 30 degrees Celsius, then fall leaves change color before winter arrives, bringing beautiful white snow in October through March. Canada gets a bad reputation for just being cold, but it's really not that bad. Average winter temperatures are about minus 15 degrees Celsius. All buildings and homes are heated and many campuses are connected with headways to stay indoors.

    In Canada, we have a large variety of climates for students to explore once they come. Depending on where you're currently studying, you may have a bit of an adjustment when you get here. Here in Manitoba, we're known for our cooler winters. And it's true, it does tend to get a little bit chilly here in our winter months. But we have very beautiful fall, spring and summer months. We have lots of provincial parks and lakes for students to explore. There's tons to do and all of our seasons. And the fun never ends.
