Where's the best place in Canada to raise kids? MoneySense has ranked 190 Canadian cities and towns in order to find out. As part of our annual Best Places to Live package, we've rated each city in 10 kid-friendly categories including access to daycare, healthcare, housing and culture to determine which places offer top-notch environments for families.

Being the best in one category doesn't guarantee a spot near the top; our rankings reward cities that place above average in multiple categories. Thinking of relocating? Check out Canada's most family oriented places.
