Historical trends





The data for the Climate Dashboard comes from the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC). We display weather information for undefined locations in real time.

While the MSC has data available for more than 800 locations, we’ve excluded locations with less than per cent of the data for the - period. This is the timeframe used to compute historical averages. Locations without historical records before have also been excluded.
