    Look at this article

    As of march 16, the vehicles registered in Quebec no longer have the obligation to be shod with winter tires.

    But this is not because it is legal that it is necessarily optimal. And this is not a requirement either.

    CAA-Quebec has attempted, therefore, to find the date on which it was realistic to change its tires.

    Everything is first a question of temperature. To this effect, the agency notes that as soon as the temperature reaches minimally 7 °C, summer tires regain their traction. In Quebec, it is not uncommon for it to be colder than that in mid-march.

    CAA-Quebec has therefore taken the care to contact the weather network to identify the average date on which the mercury has risen to 7 °C over the past 75 years.

    However, as the climate is not the same in the province as a whole, this average date is not obviously the same.

    Montreal, Gatineau and Sherbrooke: from 5 April
    Three Rivers: from the 10th of April
    Quebec city, Saguenay and Val-d’or: from 15 April
    Rimouski and Gaspé: from the 20th of April
    Sept-Îles: from the 1st of may
    Kuujjuaq: from may 25,

    This is not finished as long as this is not finished

    It is also important to remember that there is no panic to change his tyres from the 16 march. In fact, when he falls in average 36 cm of snow in march in Montreal, he falls by an average of 46 to Quebec. CAA-Quebec is added by claiming that the southern part of the province receives a storm, one year in three, in the month of April.

    In short, as long as the winter is not finished, it is always relevant to keep their winter tires.
