Although it is can get that cold, I can assure you that in most Canadian cities those kind of temps are very rare and only occur a few days out of the year. Unless of course your BF lives in the extreme northern part of Canada near the north pole.

However, mostly it's around -1 to -10 or -15 in the winter.

Also in places like Victoria or Vancouver it's quite rare for the temp to fall below -5.

And there people are working outside in oil fields. There are warming stations. You got to get in and for few minutes to warm up every now and then. Also for certain jobs Alberta pays much more than rest of the provinces.

The cold temperatures do sound scary, but life continues as normal - just with a few extra layers of clothing. It really does sound worse than it is, you just need to be prepared for it and make sure that you have the right equipment and clothing.
