Best Places to do Business in Canada

Canadian Business Magazine published their Best Places to do Business in Canada list today and the results are in.

The 40 cities we included in our survey of Canada’s Best Places To Do Business include the country’s 25 largest municipalities, according to the 2006 census, plus 15 smaller centres to provide regional representation. We ranked these places on 5 factors reflecting socio-economic health: operating cost, cost of living, building permit growth, unemployment rate and crime rate.

Of course all eight of the Canadian cities that we cover on Techvibes made the list – a couple barely:

  • 4th – Kitchener
  • 15th – Ottawa
  • 31st – Edmonton
  • 33rd – Toronto
  • 34th – Saanich (Victoria)
  • 35th – Montreal
  • 38th – Calgary
  • 40th – Vancouver
