Temperature in Canada is measured in degrees Celsius (°C). To convert a Celsius temperature to Fahrenheit:

°C x 1.8 + 32 = °F

For example: 20°C = 20 x 1.8 + 32 = 68°F

Visitors should note that "Wind chill" is a major factor that affects temperature in cold climates like Canada. In winter, temperatures are often presented with the wind chill factor. Thus, a weather report on a chilly January morning may report the temperature as -4°F or -20°C, but -22°F or -30°C with the wind chill factor.

Scroll down for temperatures in Celsius and Fahrenheit.
