As usual, and every year, Moneysense magazine ranked the best places to live in Canada.
This year (2016) Ottawa, Burlington and Oakville were ranked the top three places to live in Canada. The capital took over the number one spot from Boucherville, Que., which was lauded in last year's list for its "stellar liveability stats."
The Huffington Post Canada mention that Ottawa is the only large city in the top 10 entries. Although Toronto and Vancouver usually score high spots on lists of the world's best cities to live in, in the MoneySense rankings they come in at No. 43 and 44, respectively. Both cities scored lower this year than they did in the 2015 list.
The three bottom entries were all in Nova Scotia. MoneySense put Cape Breton, Truro and New Glasgow at the end of this year's list. The latter two were also listed dead last in the 2015 rankings
MoneySense also ranked cities in separate lists based on specific factors, like the best places to raise kids or retire.
