1. Lytton

The small community of Lytton, British Columbia, with a population of barely 250 people, has long been recognized as one of the warmest and best weather cities in Canada, with summer temperatures reaching as high as 35 °C. In 2021, the warmth at Lytton broke all prior records, becoming the hottest temperature ever recorded in Canada.

The city of Kamloops, which has a population of roughly 100,00 people, is a couple of hours northeast of Lytton. Kamloops is known to be one of the warmest cities in Canada, – thanks to its temperature. The average temperature in Kamloops during mid-year is a little below 29 degrees Celsius, and the city is noted for its desert climate. Kamloops also boasts of more warmth than any other Canadian city, and its summers are recognized for their bright sunshine and low humidity.

3. Windsor 

Windsor is a city located on the Canadian side of the border with the United States. Windsor, which is almost literally a stone’s throw from Detroit, has the second-highest average July temperatures in Canada. Windsor also has the greatest average low temperature of any Canadian city throughout the summer. In July, the coldest temperatures in Windsor average little around 18 °C. 

During the winter, Windsor is bitterly cold in this part of the world, with temperatures regularly falling below -3 degrees Celsius by January. The summers in Windsor are known for being particularly hot and humid. Despite this, it’s still sad to have one of the best weather in Canada.

4. Osoyoos

The city of Osoyoos in British Columbia has a motto that says “Canada’s warmest welcome,” and it’s no lie but true. Osoyoos have more days over 20°C than anywhere else in Canada.

Osoyoos is a small town with a population of roughly 5,000 people located just a few miles north of Canada’s border with the United States, in the state of Washington. The mild climate of Osoyoos makes it a popular tourist destination in the summer, when high temperatures, low humidity, and chilly nights provide an excellent environment for residents.

5. Medicine Hat, Alberta

Medicine Hat is also known as “the sunniest city in Canada” due to its hot summers and minimal rainfall. Medicine Hat, the most inland of all the towns and cities on our list, is located in the Prairies area of Canada, which includes the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Despite being further inland, Medicine Hat can virtually match Osoyoos in terms of the number of days with temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. 

Medicine Hat’s summers are dry, and the evenings and nights are cold, which helps to offset the heat of the day. The hottest months in Medicine Hat are late May and early September when temperatures frequently reach the high 20s °C.

6. Toronto 

Toronto, which has a population of just under 3 million people, has four different seasons, including hot and humid summers. The city’s proximity to Lake Ontario helps to keep things cool during the summer evenings, with temperatures averaging 25°C and rising even higher during more extreme periods of hot weather.

The city’s temperatures reach their peak between June and August at over 30°C.

Summers in Toronto are brief, lasting only a few months before the return of the more typical colder weather in time for autumn and then winter. Summer in Toronto is also one of the wettest times of the year, owing to the high amount of thunderstorms that batter the province on a regular basis.

7. Ottawa 

Take route 401 north from Toronto and turn left onto route 416 to get in Ottawa, Canada’s lovely capital city, in around five hours. The final stop on our tour of Canada’s warmest places is also in the province of Ontario, like Toronto. The two cities have a similar climate, with Ottawa’s summers being similarly hot and humid. The average summer temperature in Ottawa is a pleasant 26 degrees Celsius. Every summer, temperatures will momentarily exceed 30°C, with July and August being the hottest months of the year. During the summer, Ottawa’s humidity can contribute to the heat, with humidex values pushing the true temperature up a few degrees Celsius.

8. Victoria

Victoria holds the distinction of being Canada’s warmest city at the beginning of each year. 

In January, the city always has the highest average temperatures in the country, with an average daily temperature of 7.6 degrees Celsius (45.7 degrees Fahrenheit) and an average daily low temperature of 1.5 degrees Celsius (34.7 degrees Fahrenheit).

The beautifully warm winters make it pleasant to enjoy a stroll outside, which is why so many people choose to retire to Victoria and other beautiful towns on Vancouver Island. In Victoria, there are a lot of fun things to do in the winter; even the famed Butchart Gardens is open (though you’ll have to go to their indoor gardens to see flowers in bloom).

9. Vancouver

While the rest of the country is zipping up their winter parkas and scraping frost off their windows, Vancouverites can be found strolling along the Sea Wall, eating lunch on a sunny terrace, or even playing golf (seriously – there are golf courses that are open year-round).

In January, Vancouver’s average daily high temperature is 6.9 degrees Celsius (44 degrees Fahrenheit), with daily lows of 1.4 degrees Celsius (34.5 degrees Fahrenheit).

While you’re unlikely to see snow in Vancouver at any time of year, the chances are good that you’ll see some of the city’s legendary rain if you visit during the winter. 

10. St. Catharines, Ontario

St. Catharines, a picturesque city in Ontario’s Niagara Region, benefits from its closeness to Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, as well as the Niagara Escarpment’s protection. As a result, the city has a microclimate that keeps it warm even in the cold.

Although St. Catharines is warmer than other parts of Ontario (although Sarnia is significantly warmer), it still gets rather cold in the winter.

Closing

While Canada is known for its chilly temperature, many sections of the country have scorching summers. If you’re planning a trip to Canada during the summer, the warmest regions are the finest to visit.

Large swaths of Canada are blanketed in snow for six months or more of the year and in some places, all year. The greatest temperatures recorded in Canada, on the other hand, are comparable to those found in places known for their hot weather. Temperatures are normally in the mid-20s °C throughout the summer months of May to August, especially along Canada’s coasts.
