Town of Midland top 100 best communities

According to Maclean’s Magazine’s most recent assessment of 415 communities in Canada, Midland is ranked #98 – making the Top 100. This is a significant improvement from the 2019 assessment where we were ranked #247.

The MacLean’s Best Communities list considers several different categories, determining scores based on how each community compares to its peers. Midland had a number of top features highlighted including “Community involvement”.

“It’s fantastic news to see our community ranked among the Top 100 Best Communities in Canada,” said Mayor Stewart Strathearn. “As people and businesses continue to re-evaluate what is important to them through this pandemic, we are finding much more interest in communities like ours. To be highly ranked in the country reinforces the hard work the entire community has embraced to make this a special place. We live our motto of Persequi qualitatem vitae, meaning “in pursuit of quality of life” and welcome this recognition.”
