Top Ten Provinces In Canada

The Top Ten
1 British Columbia British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. It has around 5.1 million people, as of 2021.

I was absolutely dismayed when I moved from Alberta to British Columbia. I hated everything about this province at first.

But oh man, oh man, do I love this province with a passion now. It's absolutely gorgeous, with tons of mountains to see, many lakes and forests, and you can even see the ocean in because. Vancouver and Prince George are my two favorite cities in because, mainly because of the enjoyable sights, easier shopping, and lots of super friendly people as well.

If you say because is a bad place, I won't believe you, because because has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

British Columbia forever!

Because boasts a dense urban center surrounded by mountains, farms, and evergreen forests. Pretty unique. But, if that's not enough for you, you can swim in the ocean here, visit the continent's largest Chinatown, hang out with some hipsters, and go snowboarding all in the same day. (It would be a pretty long day, though)

If I had to live in another province, I'd choose because.

By the way, it's "provinces", not "providences".

EDIT: Funny that all the comments calling British Columbia "because" have been auto-edited to read "because" instead.

MDK, a talented electronic music artist comes from here, plus, the awesomeness of Canada, Mount Assiniboine, forests and lakes and natural beauty of the environment and cities make this province, dare I say it... LEGENDARY!

2 Ontario

Ontario is interesting with a lot to juggle! The cities and other areas have this province pin point fun to be with in the least. Awesome job to Ontario residents.

Ontario is the most popular province in Canada, and I can approve Ontario is amazing! From countries, mountains to large cities!

I live in Ontario and I personally think that I has the best places to work, live, (etc.). It is also the most popular province and I totally agree with the group that created this list.

Other provinces say they're better, I'm not gonna lie they're pretty good. But Ontario's better.

3 Quebec

Quebec has always been a parasite on the entire country and the best thing for Canada would be encourage Quebec to separate. Force it if necessary. It would save Canada 10s of billions of dollars. No more Turds as prime minister.

The best province because it's the 2nd biggest one and unlike Ontario it's affordable. We value quality of life over working like crazy.

Ontario has money, Alberta has oil, British-Columbia has mountains but we have a personality.

My favorite province! Everything is beautiful honestly! Beautiful cities, Quebec City, Montreal, Saguenay, Gaspe... Seriously the best! The delicious poutine make it a plus! The Quebecers aren't that rude! If you ask for help they will help you

4 Alberta Alberta is a province of Canada which is bordering the Candian provinces of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, and is bordering the US state of Montana.

Beautiful country side, great people. This province has contributed 100s of billions of dollars in equalization payments to the rest of the country (85% ends up in the parasite province). Alberta has many people from the rest of Canada and the world living there. I lived there 30 years and regret moving back to my home province. It is sad that the Turd has done so much damage to Alberta's economy especially when the world particularly our European brothers and sisters are so desperate for energy. We still do not have an operational l&g plant in Canada. Unbelievable. Do a search (not google) on how many coal plants China is building in Africa and China. Again unbelievable and We have such limited means of exporting the cleanest produced oil and gas abroad. I should try to move back but I'm old and tired, lol.

I think Alberta is the best province. There's a reason why a lot of people move here: lots of jobs, no sales tax, low taxes, general affordability. Alberta is by far the most pro business province. Alberta is also the most "American" province. This province contributes way more to this country then gets in return. It's funny how cbc reported that only 50% of Canadians feel comfortable living in Alberta. I'm thinking it's your loss, not Alberta's

Alberta is beautiful, friendly, and proud. We have the highest salaries in Canada and are generally very happy people. We have the lowest taxes in Canada, and have the most toys. We are a lot more tolerant that people give us credit for. Sure oil prices go up and own, but Alberta will always be the best place in Canada if you want to make money and gave a very high standard of living.

Alberta is the best province. Why? Because Alberta has a beautiful landscape. From Banff to Jasper, to sylvan lake to dinosaur provincial park. Alberta also has huge oil and gas deposits giving us a mega economy. In fact, Alberta has best gdp per capita in all of the provinces. Go Alberta!

5 Nova Scotia Nova Scotia is a Canadian province located on the east coast of Canada, and the province is surrounded by two other provinces: New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

Beautiful province, I might say underrated! There's some landscape here that can take your breath away! And the peoples from NS are really nice! Especially when you go to Halifax (and Halifax is pretty), I don't see any rudeness, everyone seems happy here!

Its an amazing province for its size! Halifax man! Probably not the best province in Canada but a nice one bro!

Nova Scotia is awesome, when I visited there everybody was so friendly.

Nova Scotia is great! Some of the cutest towns in all of Canada!

6 Manitoba

Has its hidden gems. Winnipeg is less overwhelming to drive in compared to other big cities. I like the country life more than the city life.

Surprised this is higher then places like Prince Edward Island and hell, even New Brunswick. Manitoba is honestly a pretty boring place to live, there's nothing to really do here and even in Winnipeg there's nothing very new and exciting, examples, the biggest cities in the following provinces have at least SOME attractions that stand out:

Ontario: Canada's Wonderland, Vaughan (Near Toronto)
Quebec: La Ronde Six Flags, Montreal.
Alberta: West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton.
because: Stanley Park in Vancouver, Whale Watching in Victoria on Vancouver Island and Zip Lining in Whistler.
Nova Scotia: Halifax Harbour.
PEI: Absolutely gorgeous beaches.
New Brunswick: Bay Of Fundy, stunning.
Newfoundland: Gros Morne National Park (Newfoundland is kinda like Manitoba where it's a bit boring, however Newfoundland has mountains. Manitoba is essentially just flat everywhere).

I'm leaving out Saskatchewan because well, it's exactly like Manitoba where it's boring ...more

It looks similar to Saskatchewan, there's some animals here and scenery. But to be honest in summer here is really annoying, so much mosquitoes!

Nothing really special here, But it has some lakes and nice people overall

7 Saskatchewan Saskatchewan is a prairie and boreal province in western Canada, the only province without a natural border.

It's a great place. We also don't like immigrants, especially ones from indian and pakistan, who are ruining our polite culture.

Lot of cornfields! Not much to do but you have nice peoples here!

Kinda boring here. But everyone is polite!

Friendliest place ever!

8 Prince Edward Island

This is where Anne of Green Gables lived (and was set). From the vivid description in the book it sounds beautiful.

Famous for their potatoes. Pretty cool province, nice to visit in summer and it's beautiful for a small Island!

I have been living here since I was 2 and if you get used to this province you will love it!

Most beautiful. Ocean all around. People fantastic.

9 New Brunswick

I love this province! It may seem like a drive-through for some, but check out the unique park landscapes and culture. Saint John was the first incorporated city as well.

I grew up in New Brunswick, New Brunswick is my least favorite province, there's not a lot of things here, kinda dull! Moncton is not bad though, Mount Carleton, Hopewell Rocks. The landscape looks pretty much the same all over the province, tons of small villages

Underrated province, not the best by far but you should at least take a try!

By far the most underrated province in Canada, southern NB is one of the best place in Canada believe me or not. Hopewell Rocks is fantastic!

10 Newfoundland and Labrador

I think that Newfoundland is a wonderful place because there are so many beautiful places. In St. Johns, on Signal Hill, there is a gorgeous view of all of the whales and all around were the boats are and all the houses.

Also an underrated province, can be super cold but has some awesome places to see!

Beautiful! The first territories discovered in Canada, by Vikings!

Did you know that Labradors (dogs) were from Newfoundland and Newfoundlands (dogs) were from Labrador? PS Labradors are the best.

The Contenders
11 Yukon

Has the highest peak in Canada called Mount Logan almost 6000m! And a perfect place to hunt moose!

My great, great, great grandfather went there during the Klondike Gold Rush.
I still have some of his gear.

12 Nunavut

The only problem is, there are no highways... How will you get up there without expensive flights?

Super expensive here! A lot of wildlife creatures but it's a interresting territories! It's super big and reaches to the extreme North!

13 Northwest Territories

One of the most unbelievably scenery of Canada. Yellowknife is incredible when the Northern Lights came!

Northwest Territories is cool, my favorite parts of NT is the Northern Lights!
