These are the 33 large cities used for the Canadian city weather data and rankings for 1981 to 2010 provided at CurrentResults.com.
The temperature and precipitation information used for these major centres come from the Environment Canada weather station that best represents the populated area. Some climate measures, such as sunshine and cloud cover, are only available from the region’s major airport. Several cities, including Barrie, Kitchener – Waterloo, Oshawa and Windsor in Ontario along with Saguenay and Trois-Rivières in Quebec do not have all types of climate data available.
