speaking as a Calgarian. all you need is a good set of snow tires and it will perform good on ice as well(Blizzark, Nokian or i'm currently using Kumho). If you don't want 2 set of tires. highly suggest look into Nokian WR2(all weather tires), they are pricey but good for all year around with decent performance. Most important is drive with common sense.

don't waste $$$ to get a beater. vehicle mean to be driven unless you are driving something is not usable like a Lambo or something similar. just wash it often as we use chemical salt and gravel(be prepare crack windshield).
go check out RIV see the requirement in order to register as Canadian vehicle.

hope all these info helps and hope you have winter package on your 5.
