Burlington #1 in MoneySense’s Best Places to Live in Canada 2013

We’ve been saying it for years, and now it’s finally been proven. MoneySense magazine have published their 8th annual list of Best Places to Live in Canada 2013. Burlington ranked #1 in the top Mid-sized cities to live in Canada.

MoneySense looks at all the data about the communities that offer the best overall quality of life. At the top of the list of criteria used to select the top cities are incomes and employment. MoneySense echos our thoughts in the Canada’s 10 Best Places to Live 2013 article when they state “After all, most people’s experience in a city is more positive when they have a high-paying job—and the ability to get a new one if they so choose.” Gone are the days when the only option was to commute into the ‘big city’ to have a successful career and truly achieve the dream job. Thrillworks is living proof.

The remaining criteria MoneySense factors into their assessment are:

  • the cost of housing compared to local salaries
  • agreeable weather
  • low rates of crime
  • good access to hospitals and high numbers of medical professionals

Congratulations Burlington! We’ve always believed in you. Just so that you know we’re not pulling your leg, check out how much we love Burlington
