OTTAWA – MoneySense Magazine has named Ottawa the best place to live in all of Canada for 2016. 

Ottawa ranked well on categories including, affordable housing, population, safety and access to healthcare. We also ranked as the best city for newcomers, because of technology and government jobs, as well as cultural diversity.

Ottawa came in second on the list of best places to retire in Canada, but didn’t rank on the list of best places to raise children.

The best city to retire is Rimouski, Que., with its low property taxes, museums and golf courses, while the best city to raise kids is Blainville, Que., where costs are capped at $8 a day.

The city with the cheapest homes is Bathurst, New Brunswick, where the average home price is $108,846.
