Here is my latest interpretation of the ECMWF weekly long range forecast model data through the 3rd week of August.
The model slowly shifts the below-normal temperatures farther back to the south and west by the second week of August as the mean upper-trough slowly retrogrades. Pattern also favors above-normal temperatures over northeast Canada for the first half of August.
The model is also showing below average accumulated tropical cyclone energy across the Atlantic Basin through the first half of August which argues against the formation of long tracking hurricanes during that period.

Hot, dry conditions to prevail across BC into next week while rounds of cooler and showery weather spread from the eastern Prairies to Quebec.
Update on the weather pattern through next week.
Large wildfires in B.C. are sending smoke far to the east. Large thunderstorm complexes may target southern Ontario later this week.
Hot and generally dry weather to focus more in the West, while several fronts will bring cooler shots and some rainfall to the East the next 7-10 days.
