Top 7 Cities in Canada for Living and Vacation

20 June 2024 14:11 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaCanada, a vast country in North America, is known for its beautiful landscapes, friendly people, and high quality of life. Cities across the nation consistently rank high for factors like job opportunities, top-notch educational facilities, strong healthcare systems, and a commitment to environmental sustainability. This combination makes it a top contender for those seeking a place to call home, or a fantastic vacation destination.

Drawing insights from various sources, here is a list of the top 7 cities in Canada for living and vacation:

1. Quebec 

Quebec is notable for its culture and history, which unfold in its iconic landmarks, such as the castle-like hotel Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, the massive fortress Citadelle de Québec that still functions as a military installation, and Musée National des Beaux-arts du Québec, a museum with its stunning architecture. Quebec City is a French and English-speaking city influenced by French design. 

2. Vancouver

Vancouver is named the most visually stunning city for its natural landscapes. Mountains stand tall to the north, while beaches and the Pacific Ocean hug the west side. Even downtown boasts a green oasis of old-growth forest. This city is perfect for adventure lovers. Plus, its moderate weather means year-round outdoor fun.

3. Montreal

Montreal, Canada's second-largest city, is known for its oldest buildings and neighborhoods. Founded in 1642 as a French mission station, the city offers a glimpse into Canada's past through Vieux-Montreal and Vieux Port.

Montreal also offers both an urban experience and natural adventures. The city is vibrant with museums, shopping places, and a variety of culinary delights, making it a suitable place to live and study. The city is home to approximately seven leading universities.

4. Ottawa

Ottawa is also a highly recommended city for people who want to study in Canada. This Canadian capital boasts various tourist attractions, historical places, shopping centers, and fun nightlife.

It is also known as the home of some of the best museums and galleries such as the Canadian War Museum, the Space Flight Museum, and the National Gallery of Canada. In the winter, tourists can go ice skating on the Rideau Canal, Ottawa's famous 202-kilometer-long canal.

5. Calgary

Calgary is famous for its diverse culinary scene, especially steaks and other meat dishes. But the city isn't just about plates. Tourists can immerse themselves in the thrilling Calgary Stampede, a week-long rodeo extravaganza with concerts and cowboy culture galore. 

The city is also home to historic sites, such as Heritage Park Historical Village, one of the largest living museums. For breathtaking views, head to the iconic Calgary Tower, where people can dine at Sky 360 Restaurant above the city lights. 

Calgary's location at the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains means people will get the most sunshine of any major Canadian city.

6. Toronto

Toronto is one of the must-visit cities when vacationing in Canada. The city offers a vibrant mix of attractions, from world-class museums like the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario to family favorites like Ripley's Aquarium and the Toronto Zoo. 

Beyond museums, Toronto is an entertainment haven with many Broadway theater shows. Tourists can also explore the city's diverse neighborhoods, such as Little Italy, Chinatown, Little India, and the Danforth (home of the Greek community).

7. Victoria

Victoria is famous for its rich tapestry of history, culinary delights, and breathtaking natural beauty. Explore Canadian cultural and natural history at the Royal BC Museum, or delve into the city's charm with its classic Victorian architecture. Foodies can rejoice in the vibrant array of cafes, shops, and restaurants.

This picturesque city attracts not only tourists but also retirees seeking a comfortable and peaceful lifestyle. Victoria boasts a tranquil atmosphere with relatively low taxes and living costs compared to other Canadian cities. Moreover, its proximity to offshore islands offers incredible natural vistas, making it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.
