Moneyinc.com included Lacombe, Camrose and Red Deer on the list

Lacombe has placed fifth in Moneyinc.com’s 20 Best Places to Live in Canada list.

“13,906 residents can proudly call Lacombe, Alberta their home city, and proud they no doubt are.” the website states.

“Set in the rolling parklands of central Alberta, Lacombe offers easy access to the stunning natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains to the west, and the equally attractive Alberta prairie to the east, along with the big city thrills of Red Deer to the north and Edmonton to the south.”

Lacombe is the highest Albertan city on the list, with Oakville, Ont. coming in first. Ottawa, Russell Township, Ontario; and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Quebec round out the top five.

“Peaceful, safe, and with an abundance of things to see and do, there is every reason in the book as to why this little city (Lacombe) is one of Canada’s best places to live,” the website states.

Camrose and Red Deer both place 11th and 12th respectively as the only other Albertan municipalities on the list.
