With its non-exsisting economy, it realize heavily on tourism and is known as the River Rafting Capital of Canada. It has a population of just unde 300 people, but the climate could be pull factor for people to migrate to this cozy little town in the future. It is the hottest place in all of Canada in the summer, with temperatures rising well above 30 Celsius. The average rainfall in Lytton is 363 mm p.a. In comparison, Vancouver’ s average rainfall is 1153 mm p.a.
