Burlington Ontario one of the best places for retirees and senior citizens

The 2012 edition of MoneySense Magazine’s Canada’s Best Places to Live came out two days ago, and Burlington is ranked Number 2.

A good variety of affordable housing, easily accessible downtown and medical services, great shopping options, waterfront location and recreation and leisure facilities combine to make Burlington a wonderful place for retirees and senior citizens to call home. Burlington has all the amenities of a big city with a lower cost of living than bigger cities, making it an attractive option to those on a fixed retirement income.
