Morinville, AB - According to MoneySense’s Best Places to Live Report, Sturgeon County is the fourth best place to live in Alberta, making it 60th in Canada out of 417 rated cities.
The annual list is informed by factors such as an area’s household income, weather, unemployment rate, access to healthcare and property taxes.
Sturgeon County Mayor Tom Flynn says the standing isn’t a surprise. “We’re not just blessed with a beautiful landscape in Sturgeon County,” he said. “This report reflects what we all know to be true: our economy is diverse, our residents are engaged, and our taxes are low.”
The 2017 list is the first one that Sturgeon County has been included on, as MoneySense recently expanded its report to study 417 municipalities from its previous rankings of just over 200.
