Installing wall charger outside in Ottawa?

Electrician coming today to my house today and I was intending to install it on the side of my house in the driveway. Just read the install Manual and it states “protection from rain is recommended but not required “
Has anyone in a cold snowy climate like Ottawa installed it outside?

I have had mine installed outside, on my riding arena, since February 2015. Orangeville gets similar weather to Ottawa. No issues
