    I found that paint made for plastic works much better.

    Sunniest Cities in Canada
    More Sharing Services Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on email Share on print
    by Liz Osborn CurrentResults.com

    Prairie cities lead the list of Canadian cities with the most sunshine. Calgary is the sunniest of Canada's large cities, enjoying an average of 2396 hours of bright sun each year, spread over 333 days. That amounts to just over half of Calgary's daylight hours.

    The tables here rank Canada's largest cities for the most hours, days and percentage of sunshine they usually get a year, based on weather data collected from 1981 to 2010. The large cities included in these rankings are the 33 Canadian metropolitan areas that had over 100,000 people according the 2011 census by Statistics Canada. Of these, only 26 have sunshine data collected by Environment Canada. Major cities missing from these sunshine ratings are Barrie, Kitchener - Waterloo, Oshawa and Windsor in Ontario along with Saguenay and Trois-Rivières in Quebec.

    No matter how you look it — hours, days or percent — Calgary consistently leads the pack for most sunshine. Edmonton also appears in the top three cities for all measurements. But the cities that show up in the rest of the top ten varies a little among the weather measures.
    Highest Hours of Sunshine

    Calgary is the only major city in Canada to average nearly 2400 hours of sun a year. Winnipeg, Edmonton and Regina come close behind Calgary, all typically topping 2300 hours of sunshine annually.

    Outside of the Prairie provinces, the sunniest of cities are scattered across Ontario, and on the south coast of British Columbia. These round out Canada's top ten major cities for total sunshine.
