As a group of Canadian Immigration Consultants in Vancouver, the team members at Racer Immigration know there are many great places to live across Canada. Recently, an online survey announced the best cities in the country for immigration—and Vancouver ranked at number 15.
At the top of the list was Oakville, Ontario, ahead of other Ontario cities such as Ottawa and Toronto. While Vancouver ranked 15th overall, it is still one of the top places to live worldwide due to “trong economy, ease of commuting and — of course — great weather.”
The online magazine moneysense.ca recently conducted a survey to find the best cities for immigration in Canada, and came up with a list of 415 locations, and ranked them based on 10 categories: Wealth and economy, affordability, population growth, taxes, commute, crime, weather, access to health care, amenities, and culture.
“A liveable city should be prosperous, but affordable. Safe, yet easy to get around. And it should have the type of weather that draws you outdoors,” the survey reads. “We award points to cities with a large percentage of the population speaking languages other than English and French and increase the importance of a low unemployment rate, affordable rents and access to an airport.”
In the case of Oakville, the survey points out that the percentage of visible minorities has increased from 18 percent to 31 percent over the last ten years and about 30 percent of residents speak a language other than English or French.
