25 best cities to live in Canada

I never had to wonder where I would like to settle once I moved to Canada. I knew I would live in my husband’s home city (he’s Canadian). If we ever move, it will be due to work commitments or to avoid long commutes. I don’t think we would consider moving very far because we would like to be close to relatives and friends.

Hamilton, Ontario

Many newcomers have the choice of selecting where they will live once they move to Canada. With no friends or family ties, they are free to pick the city that fits their needs best. This must be a tough decision. There are so many different cities to choose from. It is already hard to select an apartment building or a house, so imagine choosing the city where you will settle.

I decided that even though I don’t have to make that choice, I’d like to know what the best places to live in Canada are. I found this list that ranks the 25 best cities based on items such as affordable housing, average household income, job prospects and crime rates. The results are pretty interesting. I’d definitely like to look at a list like this should I ever need to choose where to live.

What was your experience like when choosing where to settle in Canada? Was it a difficult decision? Please leave your comments. Thanks!


About Diana Massimi

As a newcomer in Canada, I've had some really great experiences. Every day, I continue to learn and adapt to my new country. As I've just passed the three year mark as a permanent resident, I'll soon be applying for citizenship. It's an exciting step to take and I'm looking forward to being "officially" Canadian. This blog is to share what I've learned so far and my everyday experiences and feelings being a newcomer to this country. More than anything I'll be looking forward to hearing from other newcomers and exchanging impressions and anecdotes about our new life in Canada. Feel free to share and ask questions, I'm also always happy to help a fellow newcomer!
