What’s the weather like in Canada in April?
A vast country with diverse landscapes, Canada has everything from snow-capped mountains to sun-drenched beaches and vibrant cities. With such varied terrain, there’s different weather across the country from region to region. In April, it’s starting to feel like springtime for most of the country, as the chill of winter leaves and temperatures are warming up. Although it’s still quite mild in western cities like Vancouver, the amount of daily sunshine hours is on the rise. Toronto in the east is still quite cool this month, while Banff’s ski season continues into April.
The average temperature in Vancouver is 9ºC in April, reaching highs of 12ºC and lows of 5ºC. With these conditions, you’ll still need plenty of warm layers at this time. Over in eastern Toronto, things are even cooler, with an average temperature of 7ºC, highs of 9ºC and lows of 5ºC. If you plan to ski in Banff there’s an average of 5ºC, the first month since October to get above freezing after the icy winter.
