Today we’re writing about the 10 best cities to retire in Canada based on MoneySense’s Best Places to Live in Canada report. We have already featured this report in our best places for new immigrants in Canadabest large cities in Canada and best cities to raise kids posts.

MoneySense is “Canada’s leading personal finance magazine and leading personal finance website.” The overall methodology they used for this report was “adjusted to emphasize services and conditions for retirees.” This included weather, property tax, sales tax, culture, crime, health care, transit, hospital, walk/ride, proximity to an airport, new car, theatre, population growth, net worth and housing. Furthermore, they adjusted the weight of these categories to determine a score out of 100, which was the basis for the ranking.

The best places to retire, according to MoneySense, are:

  1. Kingston, Ontario – Doctors per 1,000: 4.4. Overall 2014 ranking: 11thskyline-toronto-best-city-retire
  2. Ottawa, Ontario – Doctors per 1,000: 2.5. Overall 2014 ranking: 4th

  5. Moncton, New Brunswick – Doctors per 1,000: 3.3. Overall 2014 ranking: 16th

  10. Stratford, Ontario – Doctors per 1,000: 3.2. Overall 2014 ranking: 23rd

These best cities made the list as they represent “great access to health care, decent weather and low crime rates” which are most important to those in this demographic. Access to quality health care is really important to those in their golden years as is access to culture and travel as they too are valued in determining where to retire. Kudo’s to our hometown for making the top 10.
