  1. Hmmm, I hope your financial research is a little more thorough than your retirement advice. Salmon Arm is a pretty little town (I have lived here for almost 40 years) but it is a lot more overcast than neighboring towns. Also, shopping choices are somewhat limited. I am planning to buy a condo soon and I can get MUCH more bang for my buck in Kelowna than Salmon Arm. Shopping there is better and the skies are usually brighter too.

  2. calgary is too cold for seniors who cannot afford to escape winter for 6 months. How on earth could it make the list? I’ve lived and worked here for 25 years. Believe me when I sayretirees will want to stay indoors 9 months of the year..

  3. Very puzzling. I would suggest the integrity of the list (or political motive) is significantly in question here. Namely, why are the Top 10 places to retire in Canada hugely over-represented to municipalities and communities in Eastern Canada? It would appear that Western Canada – in particular British Columbia – is vastly under-represented in this list? Refresh and try again please!!

  4. Calgary?! I’m planning to retire in a year and believe me, I won’t be staying in calgary! Much too cold, winters are much too long, and prices at the grocery stores are getting unbelievably high…….who made this list? Lousy research I’d say.

  5. After reading the comments below, maybe I don’t want to return to Canada. Why? Because Canadians are a bunch of whiners/complainers. I am a proud Canuck, born/raised in Toronto and lived in Vancouver until I was 40. I moved to California in ’85 for a terrific job opp at Stanford University. The best thing about living in Silicon (AKA Silly) Valley is the sense that anything is possible and moving forward is the way to live/work. Just reading all the negatives below reminded me how much I enjoy/appreciate the positive, can-do attitudes here.

  6. I don’t know where you got your list from but I would suggest you compile a new list. I disagree with almost everyone of your choices.

  7. Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto?? REALLY? Those three cities have cold winters and high property values! Not exactly enticing to Seniors! What about Windsor and Essex County. This area is the most southern area of Canada with some of the mildest weather and very low property prices which is much more affordable to Seniors! Also with quick access to the USA makes a nice night out of cultural events, dining and cheaper airfares at airports.
