We have a lot of weather in Canada, and we love to talk about it. Weather Winners from Environment Canada provides lots of information to help support those conversations. David Phillips, Environment Canada's weather guru, has analyzed 30 years of weather data for the 100 largest cities in Canada.

The weather data is sorted in a couple of ways. You can select a city to see how it ranks in 72 weather categories or you can select a weather category to see how the cities rank.

Here are just a few winter examples:

  • Most huge snowfall days (25 cm or more) - Moncton, New Brunswick
  • Most snow days - Val-d'Or, Quebec
  • Sunniest winter - Calgary, Alberta
  • Warmest year-round - Chilliwack, B.C.
  • Sunniest year-round - Medicine Hat, Alberta
  • Clearest skies year round - Estevan, Saskatchewan

Check your city out to see how it ranks.
