The weather on Vancouver Island offers the best all season weather in Canada. It sees a much more temperate climate with the ocean air bringing in more humidity to the island, keeping it warmer, but this also brings rain and fog especially in the spring and fall. Because of the rain, however, Vancouver Island is truly lush and green with incredible forests and an amazing coastline that is waiting for you to explore.
