Vancouver (but avoid the "burbs") or the Sunshine Coast and Gibsons if you can put up with a daily 40 min ferry ride to go to work in the Lower Mainland as there isn't much here...
I have been to Vancouver but it was a very long time ago. I heard the roads were really bad during high traffic. I love Seattle so Vancouver BC and Victoria BC are similar in Climate. Canada is an amazing place to visit in the summer but way too cold for me in the Winter. We also went up to Banff National Park and it was just stunningly beautiful. I suppose that if you like and can tolerate the cold that Toronto would be a good city. Someday I might get over there.
The best places to live in Canada are Vancouver and surrounding areas, including Vancouver Island. The City of Vancouver is of unparalled beauty and diversity of culture. What that really means is - there is something that would appeal to anybody. There is a reputation however of this location being "rainy" and "expensive" - possibly the only 2 negatives you will likely hear. However, the positives are too numerous to mention and most visitors come away with that "AH" feeling and plan to return once again.
The best places will probably require a visit to eastern Canada.
The best to live in a rural setting-- The Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia an 80 mile long valley running between Windsor and Digby
The best place for city living Vancouver or Toronto
The wild card for something really different and unusual
Corner Brook , Newfoundland. This small city is located at the head of The Bay of Islands and sits in a spectacular setting. If you like the outdoor life this is the place..
if you want city vancouver is the place but its not to far from the county its only like an hour drive from van to the fraser valley, but Gibsons is amazing as well.... basically BC is the place to be
Kitchener/Waterloo, On is a good place to live. It is not a huge city and therefore does not have as much crime as some of the bigger cities (but it does have its share). It is big enough to have all the city amenities you need. There are also two very prestigious universities in the area which draw some of the best and brightest minds. Not to mention RIM (inventor of Blackberry) is in Waterloo. I have lived in larger cities and find this to be a nice fit.
Vancouver is a lovely city, with the water close by, great biking and walking sites.
Onatario and othere places are also nice. Enjoyable as well.

I have never found anywhere in Canada that I did not like and I have been visiting every summer for over 25 years. I live south of the Mason/Dixon line and don't intend to share your winters. Thank you----But I'll be back this summer!! ........and again thank you!
I always enjoy Quebec, Montreal, and Toronto. If I had to pick one I'd say Montreal. I guess I'm just a city boy.

This question is nearly impossible to answer. There are a lot of great places to live in Canada. From east to west, I would choose the following:
1. Halifax. This small town has A LOT to offer. It has a small town feel but it also has tons of cultural events and beautiful historical sites. Halifax has great restaurants and great live music. The real estate is cheap too.
2. Montreal tied with Quebec City. Montreal and Quebec City are hip. These places feel like Europe. Montreal has a great arts scene and fashion scene.
3. Ottawa is simply beautiful. It is a major international city within minutes of the wilderness. Skiing, skating, hiking, etc can be easily done after work. Ottawa and Vancouver are perfect cities for urbanites that enjoy outdoor activities.
4. Toronto. Say no more. This is truly an international city. There are Korean sections, Italian sections, Chinese sections, Greek sections etc, etc. Toronto, with 4 plus pro sports teams, has something for every one.
5. Vancouver is likely the best Canadian city. However, it has very expensive real estate making it beyond the reach of many people. Vancouver has a great climate and a laid back feel. People who live in Van stay in Van.
Been to Vancouver and it's great. I love the weather and the environment. I live in Ottawa now and it's OK. Nice and quiet, great fishing in the summer. I go to Montreal regularly and would not live there. Too hectic. I have lived most of my life in Toronto and would prefer it because of the cultural aspects.
Whistler, BC is a great place to live.
"Come for the winter and stay for the summer," is a popular local saying. I've been here for 8 years and I enjoy it a lot.
You can ski and snowboard in the winter and mountain bike in the summer. I can ski out off of Whistler Mountain and end up about 4 houses away from my house.
My commute to work is a 5 minute bike ride when the roads are clear of snow or else it is a 20 minute walk. A bonus of living here is that there are no malls. I can drive down to Vancouver an hour and a half away if I need a mall or a big city fix.
Vulcan Alberta, in the breathtaking Prairies and Badlands of Western Canada, was proclaimed the Official Star Trek(R) Capital of Alberta in early 2010! It is a world all its own in an awesome travel universe. read more
i've lived all over canada in my time and i still think ontario , especially the north is the best place. low crime, clean air and water, friendly people , a great place to raise kids. now if your looking for a fast paced life then run from here, you'd fall asleep.
Kitchener/Waterloo has a robust economy but it is a pretty ugly city. Victoria, Ottawa, Quebec, Halifax feel more metropolitan and are a lot nicer. Anywhere in Newfoundland is good, too.
To me the best places in Canada to live are:
(1) Toronto, Ontario
(2) Montreal, Quebec
(3) Ottawa, Ontario
(4) the Canadian side of Niagara Falls
Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and all the others..
I like everywhere in Canada..
Anywhere in the Alberta or BC Rockies. Wages are higher (cost of living can by high in mountain towns, but Alberta doesn't have General Sales Tax) and the strong tourism industry means a lot of fun choices for jobs. Rich in wildlife and adventure/sightseeing activities. Other destinations of interest tend to be but a few hours drive, meaning lots of options for day or weekend trips.
