Canada’s best outdoor towns

No month without a list! The list of the month is Canada’s best towns to live in if you’re into the outdoors, published in Explore, March 2007. The winners:

Rossland, BC
Gold River, BC
Jasper, AB
Dauphin, MB
Parry Sound, ON
Whitehorse, YT
Baie-Saint-Paul, PQ
Sussex, NB
Cornerbrook, NL
Lunenburg, NS

In my opinion, missing are: Canmore AB, Squamish BC, and Tofino/Ucluelet BC. These are all famous for their outdoor activities. But, they’ve been around for a while, so it is nice to see some other towns pop up, especially down east.
