Moneysense magazine recently released their annual list of the top cities to live in Canada. Not only do they rank the top cities overall, there are also rankings for top cities to raise a family, top cities to retire and top cities for new immigrants. The magazine takes into account several factors, from quality of weather and access to hospitals, to job availability and housing affordability. Cities with affordable housing when compared to local salaries ranked higher, as did cities with low crime rates and those with easy access to medical treatment.
Also included are individual articles about the top ranking cities and what makes them great, along with details on how cities were chosen, infographics, and an interactive map of a virtual "perfect" city.
