Stratford is one of the best cities in Canada to call home, according to MoneySense magazine.
The city is moving up when it comes to magazine's annual ranking of the best places to live from coast to coast.
Last year pegged in the 15th spot, Stratford was declared the 12th best place to live in Canada in this year's rankings - though apparently it hasn't regained the glory of 2015 when the city claimed the 7th place position in Canada. The list is based on categories like a robust economy, median household income, access to health care, low taxes and crime, and nice weather.
The very best places to live, according to the magazine, are Ottawa, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Que. and Oak Bay, B.C.
To rank ahead of hundreds of other communities – the magazine examined data from 417 cities – is something to celebrate, local leaders said. Stratford was third among Ontario cities, eclipsed only by Ottawa and Burlington.
