Dressing for Winter

If you have not felt a Canadian winter yet, you may be in for a surprise! In the winter, the temperature can drop below -30°, which is cold enough to be dangerous.

It is best to be prepared. You should be careful if you have young children. Children should wear warm dry clothes when they go outside in winter. Play safe, dress warm, and enjoy your first winter in Canada!
