Canada in the fall is jaw-dropping

The Great White North is a beautiful cocktail of mountains, lakes, prairies, islands, and rainforests! The entire country is a natural wonder – just waiting to be explored. When it comes to unleashing your inner wanderlust, Canada is as good as it gets. 

While Canada is breathtaking and worth exploring throughout the year, nothing beats visiting Canada’s in the fall. Warm vibes of orange-y leaves, mouth-watering pumpkin latte, Halloween, Canadian Thanksgiving – the list goes on! 

Ready to explore, eh? Here’s a quick guide to visiting Canada in the “leaf-peeping” season.

What are the fall months in Canada?

Fall months in Canada are usually from September to November. 

Students, usually right after Labor Day weekend – go back to school in September, and in many popular destinations such as National Parks, fall is off-season, meaning not overly crowded. In late fall, you can expect rain and light snow in certain places including parts of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and North West Territories. 

All in all, September is the best time to visit Canada’s. You can expect the weather to start getting gloomy and snowy – in the months following the first week of October. 

Also, since Canada is the second largest country in the world, the temperature varies across the country. Usually, the temperature in the fall months of Canada’s lowers from month to month – resulting in shorter days and crispier weather. Here’s an average temperature in Canada’s for top fall destinations. 

  • September: 9.44 C (49 F) to 21 C (70 F)
  • October: 8 C (46 F) to 14 C (57 F)
  • November: 3 C (37 F) to 9 C (48 F)
