Canada had its fifth-warmest year ever recorded in 2012 – unlike the neighbouring United States which had its warmest year ever.

However, summer 2012 was the warmest in this country and every region had warmer than normal weather.

Winters are seeing the most dramatic shifts – 2012 had Canada’s third-warmest winter since 1948.

“We define Canada as winter – we’re a land of ice and cold and snow. And yet the one season that’s shown the most dramatic warming is winter,” said Environment Canada’s David Phillips.
