Garter snakes, which are indigenous to North America, are the most common snakes in Canada. From coast to coast, they can be found in nearly every province and various different ecosystems. This is likely because of how many offspring female Garter Snakes can have; it isn’t uncommon for a litter to be made up of 70 to 80 snakes.
