The Healthiest Places to Live in Canada
A new interactive map from the 10 and 3 suggests that the healthiest places to live in Canada are in one of the metro areas of Toronto and Vancouver. The unhealthiest places to live are in rural and isolated areas of Quebec, Ontario and Saskatchewan.
The Canada Health Map shows the healthiest and unhealthiest regions in Canada based on a number of health statistics. The map divides the country into 117 health regions and colors each region based on seven key health indicators (the rate of asthma, diabetes & cancer, access to medical doctors, daily smoking rate, rate of overweight residents and perceived mental health.).
If you mouse-over a region on the map you can view the health statistics for each of the seven key indicators in the selected area.
