St. Albert Places 4th on Best Canadian City to Live in; Edmonton, Not Nearly as High

Although St. Albert placed 4th on the best places to live list again, Edmonton didn’t fare nearly as well.

The City of St. Albert placed 4th on MoneySense Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” list this year, just as it had last year.

Edmonton however, is struggling to make the top 40, let alone top 10 or 20. In fact, we placed a pretty distant 48th.

The magazine listed a total of 219 Canadian cities.

The three cities that supersede St. Albert were Ottawa, Burlington and Oakville respectively – all of which are located in Ontario.

Strathcona County placed 36th, Toronto placed 43rd on the list, and Vancouver placed 44th.

Low crime rates, quick access to health care, and an average household income more than $50,000 higher than Edmonton contributed to St. Albert’s high ranking.CTV Edmonton

Edmonton placed 33rd on the list last year, which is a drop of 15 places in this year’s release.

One of the reasons for the steep drop may be caused by the downfall of our economy in the big city, as Calgary dropped over 40 slots in comparison to last year, to 66th place this year as well.

    At least with placing 48th, there are 171 cities and towns that we’ve surpassed. 😛 Godda look at the bright side of things!
