Now we’re shifting inward and looking at the top ten best places (cities) to live from MoneySense’s list of Canada’s Best Place to Live 2014.


MoneySense, “Canada’s leading personal finance magazine and leading personal finance website” “rank[ed] each community across 34 separate categories.” The main grouping of categories included commuting, weather, demographics, wealth, housing, crime, taxation, amenities, health care and culture. Overall, the list contains some 201 Canadian cities that were examined and ranked. Based on these findings the 10 best places to live in Canada 2014 according to MoneySense are:

  1. St. Albert, Alberta
  2. Calgary, Alberta
  3. Strathcona County, Alberta
  4. Ottawa, Ontario
  5. Burlington, Ontario
  6. Boucherville, Québec
  7. Oakville, Ontario
  8. Edmonton, Alberta
  9. Regina, Saskatchewan
  10. Québec, Québec

Toronto ranked 32nd on the list. Alberta was the province that came out on top with 4 cities in the top 10 and Ontario was a close second with three, followed by Québec with two.”The tilt westward doesn’t come without some casualties in the east. Orillia and Owen Sound in Ontario are two prime examples. Growth in these cities [are] stagnant and the job outlook is dim compared to the rest of the country.

This listing also reflects a trend away from big cities and towards smaller ones for the most part. People are shifting out of urban centers and into its surrounding areas, where they perceive they will have a better quality of life. The report notes that people have found that they are content in smaller communities and that it more than makes up for what they are leaving behind in the city.
