Guelph Best Place to Live in Canada?

Remember I had never been to Guelph prior to moving back from Asia to take the job here and while I did research a lot about the city my gut feeling and logic told me it was going to be a good place to live. Well it did turn out to be a great place to live from my first hand accounts, but I am happy to find that a 3rd party research firm has also rated it as one of the top places to live in Canada.

Below are the top 50 places to live in Canada according to Canadian Business Online ( one of the largest news agencies in Canada:

1 Ottawa - Gatineau ON
2 Halifax NS
3 Québec QC

7 Moncton NB
8 London ON

10 Gander NL
11 Collingwood ON
12 Toronto ON
