IF THE CRISIS OF THE LAST MONTHS HAS PROVEN ANYTHING, IT’S THAT CANADIANS LOVE THEIR NEIGHBOURHOODS

While Canadians from coast to coast to coast isolate themselves from the many local enjoyments they derived from their neighbourhoods prior to COVID-19, their genuine love for their local community offers many glimmers of hope in the months ahead. In our newest report, RE/MAX explores some of Canada’s best places to live, what makes them so.

The RE/MAX 2020 RE/MAX Liveability Report explores all the qualities that make a neighbourhood “liveable,” such as access to green space, retail, transit, entertainment and more, and ranks 300+ of Canada’s Most Liveable Neighbourhoods. See the findings below and share the results with your clients and prospects!
