Time difference and climate
The months of April and November are the 2 least interesting months for visiting Canada. April because spring has not completely come, the snow has sometimes not totally melted, road cleaning and repairs are not finished. November because the trees have lost all their leaves, the weather is grey, it often rains and sometimes it snows already.
