New to Canada, want to buy a motorcycle

hello everyone,
i just have few questions in mind i m new to the country and currently going to a university st. Johns Newfoundland, since i m new to country and i m more interested in riding i want to buy a motorcycle but most of my friends suggest to buy a car since the winter is harsh here
my question is how do bike owners ride their bikes in winter since i want to use it as my daily commute, and also the whole getting a license for motorcycle for 18 year old expat from India is also confusing here..
thank you.
