MoneySense Ranks 209 Canadian Cities


MoneySense’s rankings emphasize economic considerations. This list differs from others as summarized by this statement:

We feel there is a strong correlation between the economics of a city and type of life you are able build there for your family. Everyone wants to live in a beautiful part of the country, away from sub-Arctic conditions, but we question how much you’ll be able to enjoy a city if you have to work all the time—or if you can’t find work at all.

The top ten cities are:

1. Boucherville, Quebec

2. Ottawa, Ontario

3. Burlington, Ontario

4. St. Albert, Alberta

5. Blainville, Quebec

6. Oakville, Ontario

7. Stratford, Ontario

8. Lévis, Quebec
