Two continental climates roughly around the same latitude.. which do you choose?
I think I'll go for Toronto for much milder winters.

Snow figures for Changchun? The precipitation figures on wiki tend to suggest that snow virtually never occurs.

Interesting battle... Changchun is considerably colder but also much sunnier. Record lows are the same. Changchun summers are a little warmer but also much wetter.

I wouldn't want to put up with the severe cold of Changchun and not have any snow and Toronto is significantly warmer overall. But the additional 600 sunshine hours is very tempting... I can't decide just now.

I'd guess Changchun gets about 15" to 25" (38 cm to 64 cm) of snow per year based on roughly multiplying precipitation averages from November through March by 10.

Changchun for me. I like the summers more and the winters are a lot sunnier than Toronto's.

I guess Toronto. Warmer and less continental.

Toronto, no contest. It has snowier winters and cooler summers.

Changchung, no contest. Winters seem so refreshing and invigorating, energizing even...

Sunshine amounts are great too. Not bothered about snow.

Definitely Toronto.

Milder winter, mild stretches with temperatures in the 5 to 12 °C (41 to 54 °F) range and infrequently higher in most winters melting accumulated snow, very little snow last winter and it all melted away the next day or two. Lake Ontario plays an important role in moderating temperatures of Toronto. Last but not least, it's South of and far away from Georgian Bay and lake Huron hence there's minimum or no lake effect snow as opposed to regions South/Southeast of lake Ontario (Erie PA, Buffalo NY, Upper State NY ...) where you get lots of snow compared to Toronto.

Beautiful Spring & Fall.

Nice & warm summer.

I'd be miserable in either climate. I choose Toronto for the milder (but still bone-chilling) winters. Changchun has sunnier winters, but with those temperatures I wouldn't even care because I wouldn't be outside.
