Canada’s healthiest cities: west is best
Turns out Vancouver's countless Lulu Lemon lovers aren't wearing all that bum-enhancing workout gear for show--Vancouver really is the healthiest city in Canada, according to Best Health Magazine.
Vancouver always seems to be a favourite in these rankings. Anyone care to contest the results?
To determine Canada’s healthiest cities, Best Health compared two municipalities in each province—for a total of 20—using exhaustive data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), Statistics Canada, Environment Canada and others. (See our chart, criteria and expert data sources.) We went beyond the typical mortality stats to measure the comprehensiveness of smoking bans, the availability of OB/GYNs and mammography, and other issues uniquely important to Canadian women.
