Claire, we are considering retiring to Vancouver Island. I know there are varied weather patterns on the Island but can't find a good source for average rainfall. hours of sunshine etc for the major cities / areas. Is there a source you can recommend?

Question submitted by Don Lyster
(Calgary, Alberta)

First off Don, welcome to BC! You will love living here.

I get so many enquiries about historical weather records. So here's the answer, for everyone not just those sourcing out potential retirment locations (!). Environment Canada maintains a climate or historical weather on line site at: http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/canada_e.html

On the right hand side is a list of further links, click on the "Historical Weather" link and then when you are redirected - click on the "Climate Data Online" link.

I hope this helps.
