It can get as hot as plus 32 celsius - maybe higher by a few degrees on occasion, but typically canadian summers in the prairies or out east (Ontario, Quebec - the only places I'v lived in the summer) it's between 24 and 29 degrees celsius.

Vancouver is lovely, but gray and rainy in the winter. I prefer sunshine and colder WITH snow. Not all Canadians hate winters...some of us have learned to bundle up and enjoy them. I've gone out almost every day during our winter season to walk the dog. Yes, sometimes we get a blizzard, and sometimes some winters can be worse than others, but I think its like that everywhere. All in all, most of us love our seasons. If you live in Canada, you know what you are getting. If you live in Mexico, you get heat and humidity, if you live in some areas of the U.S. you can get tornados and severe storms, we Canadians get snow in the winter, but our summers make up for it all.

For WES, do we need to fill a form and get it completed from the university before the envelope is sealed and sent by the university. Or, do we just need the approved marketers+degree certificates in a sealed envelope from the university? Is there anything else that needs to be sent across.?
Thanks..

Yes Canada does get cold in the winter. Not all days during the winter are -30c, it can get as warm as 0 or higher. Just go to Canada expecting it to be cold in the winter and dress in layers with hats, scarves, mitts, boots, warm socks and warm coats. If you dress warm when going outside it won't feel quite so cold. Everyone looks forward to spring, even canadians. Winters are part of Canada and that will never change, we just accept it and deal with it.

As far as that article that was posted about the two kids dying from being outside in the cold, that was very unfortunate and if the father had been responsible and sober it would not have happened. This is not the norm for Canada or anywhere else.

Yes some days people have to stay inside because it is cold, you find fun indoor activities to do during this time like board games, crafts, drink hot chocolate, watch family shows, baking etc.. When it is warmer outside you can bundle the kids up and go outside to have outdoor fun. i.e. building snowmen and making snow angels, have a snowball fight, ski, skate, go sliding, etc. Approach it as an adventure and prepare for it properly. It is cold in Canada during the winter and you stay inside the same as I have to stay inside during the summer when it is 50c in the desert (which I hate because I am used to the cold winters of Canada) It is all a matter of perspective.

iblis3, Unfortunately you were here for the very coldest worst month of February on record. We had a terrible winter last year (the worst that I can remember) and now we experienced the worst February ever. Hopefully, it will warm up in the next couple of months and you won't regret your move from HK.
