Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive from clients:

What is the weather like in Alberta?

  • Temperature in August & September will vary from normal highs in the 60’s to 80’s and lows in the 40’s to 60’s.
    Snow flurries can occur in the second half of September.
  • October weather is generally cooler with normal highs in the 50’s to 60’s and lows in the 20’s to 40’s.
