I'd love to be able to say that its probably just you as a driver but you're from Canada and probably arent a stranger to driving in snow. So check out your tires, see if you can see the indicators and if your tires are just worn. My snow tires have plenty of tread on them but are super close to the wear indicators and arent as helpful as they were in previous seasons... As always just take your time and be safe!
I have an actual tread guage and acording to that they are at 7/32.
