Burlington is the 4th Best City in Canada

Waterfront

> Tourism Burlington

As a visitor to our city you may not be aware that Burlington is one of the best cities in Canada to live (and VISIT)! This ranking from MoneySense, a leading lifestyle and investment magazine, is based on indicators, ranging from weather and crime levels to home prices and employment prospects. Here’s what the magazine had to say about Burlington: “Searching for a hidden paradise? Try Burlington. This suburban community of 165,000 on the western edge of Lake Ontario combines some of the country’s highest incomes with one of its lowest crime rates. It is an easy commute to two major cities — Hamilton and Toronto — so finding work is easy. Better yet, Burlington’s weather is mild and pleasant (at least by Canadian standards) and Niagara wine country is just a half-hour’s drive away.”
