After a small Alberta city was crowned earlier this year as the best place to live in Canada, we started thinking about all the wonderful things the wild rose province has to offer.
Low unemployment rates, the highest income levels in the country, falling crime rates and year-round sunshine all make St. Albert, a suburban city just outside Edmonton, MoneySense's top place to live in Canada.
But we know the good life exists beyond St. Albert, extending to the entire province.
And it's not just the jobs and financial stability that make Alberta a great place to live — but don't take our word for it. We asked our readers to tell us what they love most about living in Alberta and what makes it the best province in Canada to call home.
Here's what they had to say:
