10 parkas to get you through the rest of winter in Canada

Jan 15 2020, 8:48 am

Doesn’t it feel like winter has been around for months already? Temperatures have dropped to lower than -20°C in some parts of the country, with dangerous conditions making for a snow day or two.

The good news is that the snow will eventually melt. But winter isn’t officially over until March 19. So if you’re still navigating your commute in a denim jacket, it’s time to upgrade to a coat that will keep you dry and prevent the cold from rattling your bones.

Select retailers are currently having post-holiday sales so it’s basically the optimum time to invest in a parka (or puffer) that you’ll be able to wear both now and this time next year.

To help you find the perfect fit before the season is out, we’ve rounded up 10 coat styles and where you can find them.
