We have been here nearly a year and my weather observations are:
Spring - horrible, brown landscape, fog (yes FOG) and chilly, at the same time as the UK was green and going through a heatwave so was a shock
Most of June - never seemed to stop raining

Summer - fabulous, hot, seemingly never ending season, long days, humidity, little to no FOG that I recall

Autumn - also long (to me) and like a British summer time, still warm and hot days but no humidity. Didnt see any fog that I remember

Winter - its been a mild winter or so i have been told but what springs to mind is snow, ice, freezing rain (couple of times) blue skies, sunshine, a few rainy and overcast days.

You can tell me all the stats that there are, this is what I have seen. The stats also say that the average summer temp is 21 or something like that, my memory of summer was a whole lot hotter than that.

You forgot bugs!
You can't actually sit outside and enjoy the wonderful summers as you get eaten alive

although when I go for an evening stroll I am fine, they dont seem to bite me. Its if I dare to do some weeding or stop for a chat that they land in droves....
FIL came for a visit at the end of last summer and said he was bitten lots, I was right next to him and they didnt seem to get me, perhaps they have moved on

Hi
Enjoy you recci trip...........try to make it more of a business trip. I moved to Ottawa, On, from London UK 3 years ago. Canada is a wonderful country, full of opportunity but it will be more stressful then you think. If have a network of friends and family in country it will certainly help you. If you would like to know more about how I found the visa process, the good points, bad points and what I may have done differently please feel free to message me.

Try chain smoking American cigarettes, bugs don't like Marlboro Reds. I believe Gitanes also work though not quite as well.
