Yearly Snowfall Averages for Canadian Cities
The tables below give annual averages for snowfall at major cities in Canada. The numbers are for the total amount of snow and how many days it snows in a year.
The numbers allow you to compare the typical yearly snowfall for the 33 largest Canadian cities, ranging from St John's, Newfoundland in the east to Victoria, British Columbia in the west. These are all the metropolitan areas that, according to Statistics Canada, had at least 100,000 people in 2011.
