Canada is warming at twice the global rate, report says - CNN and https://changingclimate.ca/CCCR2019/ The observed warming of Canadian temperatures are due to "human influence." There has been more rain than snowfall in Canada since 1948, a trend that looks to continue over the 21st century. Temperature extremes have changed in Canada, meaning extreme warm temperatures are getting hotter and extreme cold is becoming less cold. Extreme hot temperatures will become more frequent and intense. Over the last 30 years, the amount of snow-covered land has decreased in Canada. Flooding is expected to increase in Canada because of sea-level rise. Freshwater shortages in the summer are expected because warmer summers will increase the evaporation of surface water. We've known that the Arctic had been warmed more than the rest of the planet by a significant margin. It should come as no surprise, then, that countries on the Arctic margin should share in that elevated warming: Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Finland and Russia are all likely to experience accelerated warming particularly on their northern boundaries.
