We had a pressure treated lumber deck built for us mid April. We are near
Toronto Canada so the winters are cold and summers hot. Deck is in the sun
most days and snow will build up on it.
The guy the built the deck said seal it in the fall. Anyone have any advice
on products that would suit our weather? Should we do again in spring?
Every spring AND fall? Do the rails and pickets get done as well?
Anyone with advice on not what to do?
You have a couple of choices if you want the BESt.

If you don't like those, try Penofin Oil
I've had good results on my deck, on Spanish cedar and mahogany furniture.
Lasts a long time and gives good protection. I won't use anything else.
Yes, do the rails and pickets the first time around. They will last longer
than the horizontal surfaces though.
Many products state to be applied above 50f and not to go below 50f
for a period of time, so time may be running out for you. Ive been
happy with Cabots oil products. Consumer Reports has a good rating-
testing program you should read.
