Lowest ranking city overall
Lachute has placed last on MoneySense’s 2013 ranking of Canadian 200 cities and towns—not because it isn't beautiful or because its residents aren't wonderful—but because the city falls behind in a number of key metrics that keep a city growing.
The town’s problem areas include a shrinking population and low incomes. On the plus side, there are plenty of doctors in Lachute, house prices are relatively low and the weather is mild compared to other parts of Quebec.
