Boucherville, ‘Best Place to Live In’

Canada’s “best place to live in”, according to a survey, is a small town of about 40,000 residents on the South Shore.
Boucherville was named by as the best place in the country to live thanks to low unemployment, high incomes, affordable housing and healthy population growth. Also taken into consideration were public transit, sport and art scenes.
The town didn’t necessarily have good weather and low taxes, but it managed to beat out 208 other Canadian cities.
Others that made up the top five were Ottawa, Burlington, Ontario, St. Albert, Alberta and Blainville.
Montreal, despite being ranked as 161st, was still up eight spots from last year’s report.
Only Levis (on 8th place) and Quebec City (10th place) emerged on the top 10 to represent other Quebec municipalities.
Meanwhile, the worst places to live, according to the study, were Truro and New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. The study stated the two cities despite acknowledging their affordable housing status.
