Default Shedding?

Is this a normal time of the year for dogs to start "blowing" their coat? I have a smooth coat dog and she is shedding like mad right now (we live in Canada). Just wondering if this is a normal thing..?
Also- it's not mostly undercoat , it is a lot of top coat or I guess guard hair it would be called.

It's getting to be that time of year!
