Top Cities in Canada

The Top Ten

1 Toronto Toronto Toronto is the capital of the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located within the Golden Horseshoe in Southern Ontario on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

This city is amazing. It's a cooking pot of every kind of people's culture on Earth AND it's friendly as hell. If more cities were like Toronto, World Peace wouldn't be just a dream. - VADERtheIMPALER

The best of all cities! So much shopping and so much religion packed into an amazing city. Definitely a force to be reckoned with. If I had the choice, I would move here forever.

There's a lot of great cities but toronto rules them all. It has the largest population in the city alone and the suburbs. Most diverse major city. Loses of culture and so much more

Toronto is much better than montreal or vancouver it has everything they have and more. better nightlife by far, better attractions, nice people.

2 Vancouver

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!

Best city! The people are so friendly :)
You have the beach for summer activities, the mountains for winter sports and Downtown for everything else ;)

Toronto is the ugliest city ever vote Vancouver because Vancouver has a city, mountains, and the ocean plus it has pne and the olympics stanley park and the aquarium and science world are also amazing

Located in the Earth's most perfect place. (Northwestern Province)

3 Montreal Montreal

Montreal is very diverse and a fun place to visit. Very historical as well. If I had the choice, I would definitely live there. I have been to montreal numerous times and it's great. The malls are amazing, the food is great! There is so much to visit, the jazz festival is very cool. Plus there is this awesome french fries place. Lovely lovely lovely! French and english people everywhere. Best shopping and food ever.m - dragonfly99

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.

I was born there, it's a historical place!
No, but seriously, Montreal rocks my world. Concerts, festivals, FOOD and much much more... - Althemaster

It's a beautiful French city.

4 Ottawa 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.

It has really nice views and great people

Lol give ottawa a chance to be number 1. I mean toronto is great but its transportation system is pretty bad. Everything good happens in ottawa and I live in toronto

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

If I went to Ottawa, I would see the Peace Tower!

5 Calgary

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. - Awesomelionking

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!

Calgary is such a vibrant and cultural city in Canada. The stampede is great, and we have awesome sport teams. Great ci

Been living in Calgary my whole life and its just great,and the mountains and the farms and prairies is beautiful

Ambiance. Beauty. Setting.

7 Edmonton

Well actually we have the largest urban forest of any city in the world. Toughest and kindest folks you will ever meet. Also every week-end in sprint / summer is a festival in the parks. Just a great place to bring up kids and enjoy the most effective and robust economy in North America.

Calgary is in another league with everything including money, sorry about your luck.

Because we have the most money

Edmonton is the best of the best!

8 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

Forty above and forty below. - LowMiner50

9 Niagara Falls 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.

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.

We always go there on our holidays because the often you go, the better it is.

10 Halifax

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!

I don't know why a lot of canadians don't like this city, this city is awesome. Ex

Cool city with a lot of fun, amazing attractions and good shopping.

12 Saskatoon

Saskatoon is a good city :-D

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

I love sakatoon vote here to


13 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.

14 Moncton

The most polite city in Canada!

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.

This city is fun, not a huge city but you can do a lot of things there in Moncton City, the best places in this city is Dieppe

15 London London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

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!

London England? Why the heck is this here

We're talking aboot Canada, not Britain, Canada is my favourite country!

16 Mississauga Mississauga Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada. Situated in Southern Ontario, it lies on the shores of Lake Ontario, located in the Regional Municipality of Peel, in the central part of the Greater Toronto Area, to the west of Toronto.

The problem with Mississauga and all other Grand Theft Auto cities that aren't Toronto is that they're usually mixed with Toronto. Everything that people know about Toronto (good or bad) is usually what they know about the Grand Theft Auto, and not the city itself. It's the same with Vancouver - the city itself is small, but it's famous cause of the metro area.

I don't know why Mississauga isn't in the top 10, but it surely should be! Under Mayor Hazel McCallion, MiCity has progressed so nicely. The skyline is beautiful, it's cheap and not very crowded, the Celebration Square is a GREAT place. It has the fourth-best Walk Score in Canada too. It's also very affordable compared to Toronto. You gotta vote for Mississauga!


I love it there. It's so quiet. Well, to me because I was raised in Toronto.

Too reliant on toronto, more suburb than city

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 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.

29 Guelph Guelph Guelph is a city in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Known as "The Royal City", Guelph is roughly 28 kilometres east of Waterloo and 100 kilometres west of Downtown Toronto at the intersection of Highway 6 and Highway 7. It is the seat of Wellington County, but is politically independent of it.

Although the city's central-west side is awful and it looks like a warzone, the rest of Guelph is very good overall. Downtown is beautiful, the unemployment rate is low, and we have very little crime.

Beautiful city, good University - Dileas


30 Hamilton Hamilton

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!

The only good thing about Toronto is the sign that says "You are now leaving Toronto". Hamilton is making a comeback, and will soon be the envy of Canada.

Thank you for Lapfox. - darktonyhawk

31 Peterborough Peterborough Peterborough PEE-tər-bur-oh is a city on the Otonabee River in Central Ontario, Canada, 125 kilometres northeast of Toronto.

It's the best! Toronto is just cars and homes. It is like an hour to get to the highway in Toronto. Peterborough is awesome the people are so nice

32 Churchill
33 Yellowknife
34 Brampton Brampton Brampton is a city in Southern Ontario, Canada. It is a suburban city in the Greater Toronto Area and the seat of Peel Region.

I lived in Brampton for 10 years and I still don't feel safe. It looks like hell. Lots of drug dealers dealing drugs. Lots of car accidents. Lots of thefts. Lots of criminals. Lots of burglaries. Lots of sexual assaults. Lots of robberies. Lots of impact driving charges. Wow Brampton is a dangerous city.

Brampton has been a dangerous city since the mid 90's otherwise it's ignorant. It's not a racial issue. It's a social issue. You are most likely to be theft. Brampton has a lot of criminals. Brampton is considered one of the most dangerous cities in Canada.

Living in Brampton is horrible especially in the east no one wants to live with these Indians.

Brampton is a Ghetto.

36 Barrie Barrie Barrie is a city in Central Ontario, Canada, on the western shore of Lake Simcoe. Although located in Simcoe County, the city is politically independent.

There are so many tourist destinations like festivals,the waterfront and the big icon in Barrie. There is also the Macleran Art Centre. I love Barrie it's peaceful and people are really nice too. There are lots of shops and restaurants and malls too. Barrie is the best.

37 Cranbrook
38 Kitchener-Waterloo
39 Brandon
40 Burlington Burlington

Such a nice city, so clean and so friendly and located right in between Toronto and Niagara falls. Beautiful Nature and close to large cities while also located on Lake Ontario, it's perfect.

Best place to be in Canada - close to a 1000 different activites and attractions while nestled between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, house prices are not outrageous and the people are trusting and friendly.

41 Keswick Keswick
42 Prince Rupert
43 Windsor Windsor Windsor, Ontario is the southernmost city in Canada. It is located on the southern shore of the Detroit River, directly across the river from Detroit, Michigan.

Are you kidding me? Windsor sucks. It's right across from Detroit and there is nothing to do. However, there is this nice waterpark in downtown Windsor that's nice, but that's it...

My city, Windsor is famous for bushes that are shaped like penises that alone is a good enough reason why Windsor is the best city in all of Canada if not the world.

I don't live in this city but I visit a lot It makes me feel so proudly Canadian!

50 Belleville

Seriously? I lived in Belleville for a few years and it was hell. Lots of drugs, many uneducated people and full of white trash red neck. Many fights and violence. It is a very depressing place to be. Girls have kids by the age of 13 and people still have mullet. People are also very racist out there. I hate this place.
