Canada, the northernmost country in North America, has put some icy days and frigid nights on record. Here’s a glance at 4 provinces and territories which will send a chill down your spine.
Nunavut takes the title as one of the coldest places in Canada. Eureka, Nunavut, is said to be the coldest with an average yearly temperature of −3.5 °F or -19.7 °C. Yikes, it generally stays below zero, there!
Yukon is also home to icy temperatures. This territory lies between Alaska & the Northwest Territories and is said to have the coldest temperature ever recorded in Canada.
While the province of Alberta is further south than Canada’s three territories, it does border on the Northwest Territories. Located beside the wide-open prairies of Saskatchewan, and without many large bodies of water nearby to regulate its temperatures. As such, it also can grow to be quite cold.
Back in 1923, Doucet, Quebec dipped right down to −66 °F, (−54.4 °C), a particular record low within the country. Many other winters in this province have seen chilly temperatures.
