Winter clothing to face the Canadian cold with confidence

want to go to Canada in winter. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you pack your suitcase, but above all to help you face the great Canadian cold with serenity.
Temperature side: between the temperature of the thermometer and your feelings.For newcomers, the first winter can be hard. Don’t worry though, if you are well-equipped, you will survive and with a smile (tense but smiling all the same)!
In Canada, there are actual temperatures and felt temperatures (colder due to wind). The latter should be your guide. In winter, it can sometimes be as low as -40 (felt), not to mention remote areas. In general, in cities like Montreal or Quebec City, the extremes only last a few days and it is between -15 and -25 the rest of the time.
