The Best Places To Live In Every Province In Canada

Canada is a rapidly changing country. With booming urban economies and an influx of investment, the landscape of major Canadian cities and suburbs is undergoing a fundamental transformation.

The rise of condo towers is contributing to the sweeping wave of gentrification across the country, pushing many city residents away from downtown cores.

For this reason, many Canadians, epecially young Canadians, are considering a move.

So that prospectivehomebuyers may get a sense of the value and quality-of-life across the ever-evolving country, MoneySense compiles data to create annual rankings of the Best Places To Live In Canada.

To do this, the publication considers 9 criteria: wealth and economy, affordability, deographics, taxes, commute, crime, weather, health, and amenities.

Below, we've condensedthe 2018 ranking of over 300 municipalities to produce a list of the best places to live in each province in Canada.

For every province but Prince Edward Island we've included three entries — PEI was the only province with only two municipalities that made it onto the MoneySense ranking.

Below each town and city are their national ranking and "average value of primary real estate," according to MoneySense.

Did your town make the list?
