General Time, Temperature & Weather Recordings (Canada)

Environment Canada provides telephone weather services in English and French languages for a number of cities in Canada.

Environment Canada uses an ATAD (Automatic Telephone Answering Device). It is basically an automated voicemail forecast, updated using computer. EC used to publish these phone numbers, but no longer does so, so this list has been cobbled together from past experience and trial-error. These local numbers also cover some other areas as well (noted where possible), and the recorded forecasts are timely and accurate direct from EC data (i.e. computer read from transcript).
