Tuesday Mar 07th, 2017


Burlington has been named the best mid-sized city for the third year in a row by MoneySense Magazine, according to the magazine’s Best Places to Live 2015 rankings released today. 

The municipality was also rated the third-best city overall in Canada, behind Boucherville, Que., and Ottawa. 

“We are very pleased that MoneySense recognizes what people in Burlington already know,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. 

“We had some very challenging times last year with the flood and the ice storm. The community pulled together in such an impressive, selfless way. That is part of what makes Burlington so special.”

Best Places to Live 2015 measures 209 cities in 20 categories.

Burlington was found to be the second-best place overall to raise children, behind St. Albert and ahead of Calgary. Oakville was ranked fourth in the same category. 

MoneySense rankings define a small a small city as a population below 100,000, a mid-sized city has a population between 100,000 and 400,000 and a large city has a minimum population of 400,000.

The magazine determines its rankings based on Census Metropolitan Areas, Census Agglomeration and Census Subdivisions, as defined by Statistics Canada.

“Burlington has a safe, clean environment, access to health care, great amenities, abundant green space, and Lake Ontario at our doorstep. This is a festival city that also has excellent parks and trails.”
