To the people of New Glasgow, we’re sorry in advance.

As we reported earlier, Money Sense released its list of the best places to live in Canada. At 209 cities in total, it’s fair to say they left (almost) no stone unturned. That’s why we decided to flip the list on its head, so we could also establish the absolute worst places to live in the country.

Now, before anyone gets too offended here, we found that the “best” cities on Money Sense’s list were also among some of the most boring in Canada. The magazine also comes up with its rankings via a host of very practical (*yawn*) factors like average income, crime, length of commute, weather and so forth. So just because you live in a city that didn’t perform well, it doesn’t mean your community doesn’t have something exciting to offer.

Now, without further ado, here are the bottom 10 cities on Money Sense’s list (from best to worst):

  • Shawinigan, Que.
  • Elliot Lake, Ont.
  • Campbellton, NB.
  • Lachute, Que.
  • Dolbeau-Mistassini, Que.
  • Miramichi, NB.
  • Cape Breton, NS.
  • Bay Roberts, NL.
  • Port Alberni, B.C.
  • Truro, NS.
  • New Glasgow, NS.

As you can see, the Maritimes as a whole didn’t perform very well. In fact, since 2011, New Glasgow has ranked near the bottom of Money Sense’s list. But the residents there don’t seem to agree.
