Top 10 Cities in Canada

The Top Ten
1 Toronto Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada. Toronto is an international centre of business, finance, arts, and culture, and is recognized as one of the most multicultural and... read more

" It is amazing, no conflicts happens on the street, nor any other robbery or murderous happened in the city. It is amazing, the tower glows beautifully in the night city, lights up the sky, with an amazing view of the river! reflections of light in the river, making the night view as bright as day, buildings, small lights, seen from dark is like a ant farm light, a shinning dot for each, stars clearly seen, and quiet in the midnight.

Close first against Niagra falls. Both are great, but just pushing to first place is toronto with the skyline, everything for everyone like what one commentator on the montreal section said: "It has something for everyone. It is good for sports lovers, animal lovers, foodies, beach lovers, nature lovers, and amusement park lovers" - Mono. Amazing city, and I wish I was rich enough to live in downtown.

2 Vancouver Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.

I am so moving to Vancouver when I'm older. After high school I'm gonna be one of those international university students. I can't wait to get to Vancouver. All my life I've wanted to go to Vancouver. I love it when a city is considered beautiful by everyone and that is exactly what Vancouver has achieved. I love you, Vancouver!

Vancouver has better rapid transit, infrastructure and food than Toronto. Plus, unlike Montreal and Toronto there are actually things to see outside of the downtown core like Metrotown, South Surrey, Lynn Canyon, and much more.

3 Montreal Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Originally called Ville-Marie, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. The city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which took... read more

Montreal is a good place to live. Live in a good neighborhood safe and clean at Montreal and you gonna love Montreal to life I swear. Montreal have some things that should be set like some parts of the city, the road is nasty, graffitis in old buildings, abandoned buildings in the airports areas and this made tourists a bit afraid of Montreal, this are the bad thing about Montreal. But otherwise, Montreal is really a good place to live. Mount-Royal, Old Montreal, Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal Olympic Stadium + Tower, La Ronde and etc.

4 Calgary Calgary is a city in the Canadian province of Alberta. It is situated at the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River in the south of the province, in an area of foothills and prairie, about 80 km east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.

Calgary is just the best! Good work in all industries, super nice people, close to the mountains, most sunny days of any city in Canada, warm chinooks during winter, beautiful massive parks, including a provincial park that runs pretty much across the entire south(Fish Creek Park). Great downtown life, good bars, lots to do anytime of the year!

I live in Calgary and it is a really nice city they have the greatest stampede in America. Also there is barely any crime compared to other cities.

How did Ottawa pull ahead of Calgary? I've lived in both cities for equal amounts of time and Calgary is ten times better than Ottawa.

5 Ottawa Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. It stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of Southern Ontario.

Lived there in early 90's. Visited recently and was not impressed with the downtown area. Was surprisingly dirty and a lot of homeless

Beautiful view of the Capital. I like it there, I prefer Toronto but Ottawa is nice too!

My friend lives in Ottawa and he said it was awesome.

6 Quebec City

I live in Montreal and have been to Quebec City a couple of times, and I can say it's way better than Montreal. Way more relaxing, beautiful, historical, etc.

A nice town to relax from the capital and its not big as Montreal. By the way, Quebec City is fun, visit the "Vieux Quebec (Old Quebec)"

Definitely better than montreal, especially if you love snow!

7 Edmonton Edmonton, the capital of Alberta in Canada, is known for its festivals and natural beauty. The West Edmonton Mall is one of the largest shopping and entertainment complexes in the world. The North Saskatchewan River Valley provides a vast urban parkland with hiking and biking trails. Edmonton hosts... read more

Edmonton is the best city in Canada. Edmonton has all 4 seasons (spring, summer, fall and winter). It also has the largest urban forest in North America, which adds a beautiful scenery to the city. People in Edmonton are very friendly, edmontonians really love their city. We also have the largest mall in North America, which adds a benefit for shopping. Edmonton has plenty of festivals which can keep you occupied in the summer. Edmonton is also Canada's fastest growing city, so that must mean people really like Edmonton. The city also has many bike trails, so if you like bike riding, Edmonton would be the perfect city for you. I must say that I really hate Calgary, Calgary tries to be better than Edmonton but deep down Edmonton is by far better. Calgary says they have easier access to the Rocky Mountains, I pretty sure calgarians don't go to the mountains that often. It's easy to get to jasper from Edmonton. Calgary thinks they're the cleanest city in the world, that's false, Vancouver is cleaner for than Calgary. Calgary is the sunniest city in Canada, what's so good about that? A few clouds won't mind. I hope that nobody from Edmonton moves to Calgary because Calgary sucks and Edmonton will always be the best.

8 Niagara Falls Niagara Falls is a city in Ontario, Canada. It is located on the western bank of the Niagara River in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, with a population of 82,997 at the 2011 census.

This is my favorite place in Canada. And in the world.
The grandeur of the Horseshoe Falls and the rainbows, that appear very often, can't be described.

Best place for vacations! My family has been visiting niagara falls for the past twenty years. It is still as wonderful as it was the first time!

Great destination, close to the wine country, good theatre, cuisine and of course good people and their unique cultures.

9 Halifax

Really good citizens has lakes. Probably number 2! But there is a bad thing with it has a lot of tax and more tax then others.
But I lived here and I recommend a visit!

This is AWESOME city! It is one of the most beautiful. Plus, it is a medium city! Not like cities such as Vancouver, where Justin Beiber hangs out. HALIFAX is best!

A perfect city to experience true Canadians. No metropolitan attitudes like in Toronto or other big cities.

10 Winnipeg

I stayed one month in Winnipeg and it could be the city in which I'd like to settle. It's big, so much things to do (beautiful parks, great malls, lots of restaurants... ) yet public transportation is only by bus.

Winnipeg is one of the most dangerous cities in Canada.

Great city, not to mention very nice people. Great big forests to take hikes on too

The Contenders
11 London

There's also a London in Canada, you guys! Why don't you just start using Google Maps so you know your geography better!

Small town feel in a medium sized city. What else do you need. Also the most affordable housing in the country.

What is a picture of England doing here? England is my city!

12 Saskatoon

Lived in Saskatoon a few years when I was a kid, it was nice back then, friendly people. but now it seems to be dirty and not like it was. Used to live in River Heights. Only bad thing was trick or treating in the mall since it was already freezing in October !

Whoever says Saskatoon is ass clearly hasn't been there or lived there.

Nobody likes Saskatoon. No one likes saskatchewan. Them and quebec are filled with asss.

13 Victoria

Great weather and a nice city for walking or biking.

It's my name and the people there are awesome!

Who ever made this is drunk... Victoria is hands down the best place in Canada. (I live inOttawa)

14 Red Deer

Named "Dead Rear" by Albertans. Lots of big, loud trucks, and a liquor store on every corner. Crime is rising. Red Deer College promoted itself as "Plan B" at one point. All the good people are leaving.

15 Moncton

A nice place to live, not too small and not too big. And its working like a big ciy like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver etc... I love this city.

The most polite city in Canada!

16 Waterloo

We are so lucky to live in this mini-city of universities, pedestrian and bike trails, great 'Uptown shops and bars, and well maintained public parks and spaces. I like how although the city is growing, the planners are keeping the downtown area compact and 'cute'. The ION public transit train links Waterloo with Kitchener.

Waterloo is a very clean and technologically advanced city. It's downtown area is growing rapidly and it has a very strong focus on education as well as being the birthplace of blackberry. Waterloo is truly an amazing city that in 10 years time will be even better.

17 Banff

Best place in Canada. Very Beautiful. Has mountains, Skiing, and lots more

18 Saint. John

Well, it's the best city I've been to. Better than moncton, at least if you disregard the economy. The weather is the best in canada. Rain and fog half of the year! I'd you don't like rain, you're a monster.

19 Jasper

So beautiful and so nice people.

20 Orillia
21 Regina

I'd love to visit this beautiful City!

22 Hamilton

Hamilton is the most diverse city in Canada. Its now transitioning between being a labour steel production city to a leader in Medical advancements. All the while, being the waterfall capital of the world and home of what people call "the mountain", where many street names continue but coin the prefix, Upper. ex. James St and Upper James street. There are no many different communities that co exist where race, class, education level and religion are intermingled and live harmoniously.

Hamilton is an interesting and diverse city. Located between Niagara Falla and Toronto, on the south side of Lake Ontario, close to Wine Country Ontario. It has an older industrial base profile ( steel mills), and lots of diversity.. It went through some tougher times but the people are resilient, optimistic and embracing the future. Watch out for ain't seen nothing yet!

23 Kamloops

Best climate in Canada. Driest hottest summers and a fairly mild winter. Fantastic skiing close by at Sun Peaks and the best recreational lake in Canada (Shuswap Lake) is a short drive away in the Summer.

24 Thunder Bay
25 Fredericton
