In a nutshell, October was cool and slightly wet (with the exception of the north which remained dry). 

October was cool enough for unseasonably early snowfalls to accumulate for various parts of the province (not just the north!) in the second half of the month.

See all the details in the attached final report for October and the outlook for fall/winter.

From Jill Maepea of Environment and Climate Change Canada, here is the August review with an outlook for fall.

CANWARN involves an active group of people that spot and report on severe weather. It was originally formed as a network of weather-trained ham radio operators across Ontario, and has since spread to Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, and into Atlantic Canada. The network now includes a growing team of other formally trained severe-weather spotters, from members of the Canadian Red Cross to government and provincial park staff.
