MoneySense magazine is out with its annual list of the best places to live in Canada and Windsor has made the top 200.

Windsor placed 162nd on the list which is determined from measuring “what can be measured and compared what can be compared from towns and cities across our provinces and territories.”

Part of MoneySense’s methodology includes ranking each city in 34 categories that include such factors as average household prices, unemployment rate, average household income, crime rate, the number of hot and cold days and what percentage of the population takes public transit to work.

Leamington beat Windsor to be called the 136th best place to live.

As for the top spots across Canada? St. Albert, Alberta, a town of 64,377 people, took the top spot with Calgary, Alberta in second, Strathcona, Alberta in third, Ottawa, Ontario in fourth and Burlington, Ontario in fifth.

Despite Toronto being Canada’s largest city, it took 32nd position, and Montreal, Canada’s second largest city by population, came in 169th.

Windsor did however come out on top for at least one segment of the list.

Thanks no doubt to our hot, muggy summers, Windsor placed first for the number of days above 24 degrees celsius at a figure of 54.3 days per year, beating second place Chatham-Kent by a full week’s worth of warm days.
