Normally, when we think of some of the best places to live in the world, we picture the glitz and glamour of cities like New York or Paris. We picture the hustle and bustle of a moving, ever-changing locale complete with cocktails, nightlife and more fun then you could possibly imagine.

Unfortunately, none of the cities on this list are anything even remotely like that. But, we can still promise that they’re among the greatest areas to settle down in Canada.

How do we know that? MoneySense released its Best Places to Live 2015 report, which boasts that it’s “the most comprehensive data-driven snapshot of Canadian cities you’ll find anywhere.” Ranks are assigned to various locations based on a host of practical (remember that word) criteria like crime, weather, average income, transit accessibility and the prevalence of arts and sports facilities.
