But I just did a little google search on temperatures and found this little fact:
The lowest recorded temperature was -71?F (–57.2?C) at Fort Smith on 26 December 1917
(The Northwest Territories
I've personally seen -62f (-52C) in January 1975, and -47C (-52.6F) in January 1996 in Whitehorse, Yukon.
If you go to this wikipedia page, you'll find the two coldest temperatures recorded in Canada are both in Yukon Territory.

I'm sure there are places where people live that get much colder than normal though... Antarctica anyone?
The cold temperature in Snag -63C (-81 Farenheit) was with no windchill. The air was so dense that a guy walking outside could hear people talking a few miles away. Snag no-longer has a regular population, but at the time was an airstrip with a weather station.
