According to MoneySense magazine, Burlington has been ranked the 4th best place to live in all of Canada and the best place to live in the GTA. Burlington was the only GTA city ranked in the top 10, ranked 4th behind Victoria, Ottawa-Gatineau and Kingston.
The lifestyle and investment magazine used criteria such as weather, crime levels, home prices and employment prospects to rank each city. The Mayor, Cam Jackson, say that it was no surprise to the people who live, work and play in Burlington that their city is the best! It's a city with strong social programs, a stunning natural environment, world-class festivals, a stable and diversified economy and an incredible community spirit.
The magazine focused on factors most likely to affect the long term happiness of the residents. Charming downtowns and beaches are nice, but the factors seemed to be more practical when determining the rankings.
