Ontario has some of the most beautiful places
in the world. Picking the right place to live could be a
bit tricky. From hockey to a flourishing economy to great
outdoor opportunities, Ontario has so much to offer. Here’re the 10 best places to live in Ontario. 1. Toronto. The fourth largest city in North America,
is considered the financial and commercial capital of Canada,
home to about 40 percent of Canada’s business headquarters, including the country’s largest
banks. Toronto is the capital of the Province of
Ontario and is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Suburbs such as North York, Markham, and Richmond
Hill are favored by families, and are among the best places to live in Toronto. Single men and women tend to prefer the downtown
core, where the condominium market has exploded over the last decade. Overall, the city of Toronto’s crime rates
are low compared with many North American cities. Toronto isn’t safer than Hamilton or Ottawa,
but it’s still pretty safe by American standards. 2. Ottawa. Ottawa is a vibrant and youthful city, with
two large universities dominating the city center: University of Ottawa and Carleton
University. As the capital city, it boasts beautiful architecture,
a bustling downtown core, and a diverse range of interesting neighborhoods. The city’s mesmerizing beauty is just impossible
to ignore. Standing on the south bank of the lovely Ottawa
River, the city is home to some of the most famous avenues for cultural expression. Be it performing arts or museums, Ottawa has
it all. The National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian
War Museum, and the Canadian Museum are just some of its many attractions. But Ottawa is not just about tourist attractions. The city is known for offering a standard
of living and an employment rate that are one of the highest in all of North America. More importantly, all this excellent lifestyle
comes without the usual rate of crime. 3. Hamilton. Hamilton is one of the best places to live
in Ontario. The city is strategically located between
Toronto and New York. This offers great opportunity to explore the
cultures of two countries in a matter of minutes without the high cost of city living. All you need to benefit from the two giant
metropolises is just an hour drive. The most important economic activity in Ontario
is manufacturing, and the Toronto – Hamilton region is the most highly industrialized section
of the country. It is known as the steel capital of the country,
with 60 percent of Canada’s steel being produced in Hamilton. In addition to charming neighborhoods and
a fantastic landscape, Hamilton has all you need to live: a medical university, museums,
a high employment rate, and much more. Hamilton’s climate is humid-continental
and considered moderate. 4. Oakville. A vibrant and impressive community within
the Greater Toronto Area, Oakville is a beautiful lakeside community with a strong heritage,
preserved and celebrated by residents and visitors alike. Incorporated in 1857, Oakville has become
one of the most coveted residential and business centers in Ontario, and for good reason:
Great neighborhoods, Great places to do business, Quality schools, Proximity to LakeOntario
and recreational areas, and charming shopping districts. People who live here are proud of the quality
of life this great community has to offer. Ideally located in a beautiful natural setting,
Oakville offers first-rate facilities and amenities. The outstanding range of lifestyle choices
will continue to make this growing community one in which residents and businesses feel
a sense of pride and connection. 5. Cambridge. Resting at the confluence of the Grand and
Speed rivers is the idyllic city of Cambridge. The city has a small population of around
100,000, but the small size shouldn’t scare you if you are worried about employment. Cambridge is home to quite a few factories
that employ much of its population. Another factor that makes Cambridge an intriguing
place to live is its affordability in comparison to other nearby cities. The city also attracts college students from
across the globe, thanks to the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, which
is located here. More than 100 parks and 365 hectares cover
the area to go along with 70 kilometers of hiking, biking, and walking trails. Cambridge is an ideal location if you love
the active lifestyle. 6. Burlington. Burlington is situated on the shores of Lake
Ontario and conveniently located within an hour of Toronto & Niagara Falls. It’s a small city with a population of 125,000
residents. It’s located near the Golden Horseshoe,
a highly industrialized region. Many of the Burlington residents are employed
in the Golden Horseshoe and can commute by car to their jobs. When you want to escape to nature, there is
so much diversity surrounding Burlington. Provincial parks, conservation areas, hiking
in the escarpment, beaches, the Royal Botanical Gardens, nature walks at Paletta Mansion. Some of the best hiking in the world can be
done in the local sections of the Bruce Trail and the Niagara Escarpment. 7. Peterborough. Peterborough is a small city of around 80,000
people, but by any standards, the city is one of the best places to live in Ontario. The small size of Peterborough alone is quite
a big attraction since it implies tranquility, serenity, and peace. Imagine escaping to a place where the community
is vibrant, the natural beauty is breathtaking and the people are genuine. Whether you choose to live footsteps from
downtown or on a serene lake, the cost of living throughout the Peterborough
Region is more affordable than in other urban and suburban areas in the province. And with one of the province’s shortest
average commute times, you will spend less time in traffic and more time enjoying life. 8. London. If you’re looking for a place to live in
Ontario but don’t want to miss out on the French-speaking world of Quebec, London’s
your place. Midway between Detroit and Toronto, London
is at the heart of Southwestern Ontario. To newcomers, the city offers affordable housing,
beautiful parks, low crime rates, excellent education and healthcare facilities, and substantial
cultural life. Walking, cycling and driving are easy given
the city’s layout. There are extensive bike routes within the
city including on-street routes, off-street routes and multi-use pathways. Whether you are looking for the urban lifestyle
of a big city or the appeal and security of mid-size community you will find it here. London is a great place to live, raise a family
and enjoy life. On average, the weather is comfortable allowing
for outdoor activities year around. Summer months are hot and humid with an average
temperature in July of 20.5°C. 9. Guelph. Lying 62 miles from Toronto, Guelph is also
known as “The Royal City.” The city earned the nickname for its high
standard of living, low crime rate, and a clean environment. In the last ten years, Guelph has been consistently
ranked in the top 10 safest cities in Canada to live. This makes it not just a great place to raise
a family, but a great place for seniors as well. The city’s unemployment rate is under 4%,
and the largest employers are Linamar, the University of Guelph. If the outdoors is a little bit more your
speed, Guelph has something for you too! With over 1000 hectares of parks dotted throughout
the city, every neighborhood has somewhere for you to relax, play some basketball, or
spend a day with the family. 10. Waterloo. A small city in Southern Ontario. Waterloo Region is an active, thriving place
to live, work, study and invest. Immigrants come from all over the world to
make Waterloo their home in Canada. An hour’s drive from Toronto, the area offers
a mix of modern cities and beautiful countryside. The city is remarkably peaceful. Crime is extremely rare; seemingly non-existent
if you’re coming from the United States. The city has five main parks to meet the outdoor
needs of its sports-loving population of 100,000. The area enjoys four distinct seasons, with
predictable weather patterns, warm summer months and moderate winters.

    Second- the Burj Khalifa is not in Toronto
    Third- London is not known for francophone populations
    Fourth- robot can’t say Guelph
    Fifth- introduction for Waterloo, title says Burlington

    I do agree with Ottawa and Toronto area suburbs but what about northern Ontario and Kingston?

    Toronto is severely unaffordable. Housing costs are highway robbery and are a total rip off. Unless you have $3 M plus in your bank, look elsewhere. Same applies to Oakville.

    I can't believe this video. I'm from Ontario and have been to every one of the cities mentioned and have lived in a few of them. The video is mostly inaccurate. Ottawa is boring. Downtown is dead. Hamilton is the armpit of Ontario. Toronto is way too expensive. Lived there for 10 years and constantly had a headache and it's very competitive. Took me 5 years to adjust to the city and took me 5 years to get out of it. There's nothing going on in Guelph…and one of the pictures is of Vancouver, not of Guelph…which is pronounced GWELF. I went to university in London and it is one of the most conservative cities you'll ever live in. I was there just a few months ago and noticed that nothing has changed in 25 years. It does have an amazing university and yes it has great healthcare. Cambridge? No thank you. It shouldn't even be on the radar. I lived in Kitchener/Waterloo and couldn't get out of there fast enough it was so dull. I guess dull means no crime. Which is okay. I guess that's what you want if you're raising a family. Take your pick, but don't be surprised if you find the place you chose is not what you expected…especially if you listen to this video. Wherever you decide to settle, make it your own. Home is where the heart is.

    I can say one thing and this would be that the times given for travel between these locations are very inaccurate I lives in Toronto/Scarbrough! All my life and to drive to Waterloo would be around 1.5hrs each direction and higher lengths of time than said in the video above to the other 8 cities

    I was born in Toronto, now Canadians are the minority. The whole west end of Lake Ontario is over populated and the highways are a nightmare. Housing costs….forget about it unless you have a rich uncle. Get away from Toronto and that region. We used to plug our noses when going past Hamilton, it stinks there (steel mills). Middle Ont. is much better but does not have very large cities. My sister lives in North Bay, I've always liked it up there. London is good , St. Marys is good, so is Peterborough, even Kingston is a cool place. BTW I've never heard Guelph pronounced so poorly.

Trudeau is handing out Hundreds of Millions to other Countries and yet he can’t help us with health Care or Education, but his scam on Global Warming. If he gets back in you won’t have to worry about best place to live because we will be bankrupt. No Jobs. Wake up and vote and remove Trudeau and his Disfunctional Liberal Joke Party.
