Like Canada, even the hottest places in Provence or Occitanie average around 30C Max in July/August. These regions have low humidity & near constant sunshine in those months. A good part of France can get temperatures above 40C only during extreme hot weather, similar again to many places in southern Canada which is a colder weather country during winter.

Statistical fact: The average July mean temp in Toronto is warmer (on average) than about 80% of France’s land area & additionally it’s far more humid. At temperatures above the lower 20s C (72F), more saturated air feels warmer. I have spent significant time in a tropical climate & I can tell you that on the hotter days in Toronto feels similar with high cumulus clouds, noticable humidity, low wind speeds. during hotter summers this weather can continue for weeks or in some years, a good part of the time over a few months span. even in milder summer years such as this year, humid warmth is still present much of the time just not as intense.

That you didn’t find it that hot or more on the discussion point, humid, during summer in the years you lived in Toronto, that’s your personal observation, most posting on this topic seem to disagree with you.
Do agree that 35C (95F) should be the threshold in a mid-latitude climate for it to be deemed a heat wave.
The summers are about the same as Lyon and Bordeaux.

According to Environment Canada, a heat wave is defined as several days with temperatures of 32° C or higher.
I don't know any station in Toronto that has a July high above 27C. Of course unless you round 27.1C to 28C.

Yes, the average high in July is 27.1C, but the normal highs in mid to late July (July 16th-24th) may reach 27.5C, just like the normal high on the first day of July is only 25.8C. Anyway, normals are between 27-28C.
