Canadian Business magazine has come out with its rankings of Canada's best jobs. And unlike last year, when oil industry jobs ranked first and third, this time the legal profession emerged as the most lucrative.

Lawyers topped the magazine's list of 100 jobs, while government positions also figured prominently.

The health profession also proved a hot one on this year's list. Health care manager, head nurse, and psychologist positions all ranked well.

People looking for a new career might also consider correctional services, with positions in those areas coming in the top 15.

The magazine came up with its rankings using data from Statistics Canada. Jobs had to have experienced employment growth over the past five years, had a minimum salary of $60,000 and employed at least 5,000 people.

Rankings were determined by calculating employment growth, median compensation based on a 40-hour work week in 2013, expected demand for jobs using data from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), and change in median compensation from 2007-08 to 2012-13.
