The Conference Board of Canada recently released a report on the best places in Canada to live and work. 50 cities and towns were given a grade from A to D representing how attractive they are. It grades and ranks 50 Canadian cities according to features that make them attractive to mobile populations. The results were assessed by the factors: society, health, economy, environment, education, innovation and housing.
Here is the report for reference: “City Magnets III: Benchmarking the Attractiveness of 50 Canadian Cities”
“A” cities with a “strong magnetic pull”: Calagry, Ottawa, Richmond Hill, St. John’s, Vancouver, Waterloo,
“B” cities with”Magnetic Appeal”: Toronto, Markham, and Mississauga.
“C” cities with “Room for Improvement”: London, Kitchener, Surrey, and Moncton.
“D” cities with “Struggling to Attract”: Windsor, Cambridge, and Abbotsford.
I currently reside in Vancouver, and its overall high quality life, such as its society, education and environment appeals me. The only drawback would be housing.
