CANADA IS TALKING ABOUT EDMONTON

Let us eavesdrop on what people in the know are saying about Edmonton.

This is how Americans see us (and the rest of the world)

Best Places to Live in Edmonton
A few years back, 
Money Sense magazine ranked Edmonton as the 31st most liveable location in Canada 
in terms of its economy, amenities, real estate market, weather, and attractions. 
By 2013, Edmonton had jumped to 11th best location in Canada, 
and was rated in 3rd place among the big cities, behind only Calgary and Ottawa.

The city of Edmonton has experienced a decline in real estate prices 
since they peaked in May 2007. Home prices in late 2012 averaged $329,000, 
up 4.4 percent from $316,000 a year earlier.
Edmonton is relatively stable in economic downturns, 
but the global economy’s recent plunge has been a driving force 
in the reduction in real estate valuations.
 Regarding the best places to live in Edmonton, 
we’ll consider family-friendly neighbourhoods offering a good quality of life 
with low crime rates. (These might not necessarily be your choice if you’re a young single
person looking for inner city night life and entertainment.)
Edmonton’s residents often identify the city’s south western neighbourhoods 
as some of the most desirable and affluent.
 
NEIGHBOURHOODS SUCH AS 
Haddow , Henderson Estates and Ogilvie Ridge have very low crime rates 
and their residents are very affluent compared with most others.

NEIGHBOURHOODS SUCH AS
Blackburne and Falconer Heights
are affluent areas with similarly low crime rates.

NEIGHBOURHOODS SUCH AS
Lendrum Place and Steinhauer 
are more middling for affluence levels and, 
although they suffer a little more crime than the neighbourhoods mentioned previously,
still have low crime rates.
 
IN SOUTH EDMONTON
Windsor Place and Bearspaw
are good neighbourhoods, 
while in the South East Wild Rose, Cloverdale
and Larkspur are great places to live

IN THE SOUTH EAST
parts of Mill Woods have a reputation for higher levels of crime; 
some residents of Edmonton warn people not to live in Mill Woods.
This is rather unfair, given the size of the area – over 100,000 people live there. 
A minority of Mill Woods areas do have problems, 
while other neighbourhoods offer a high quality of life with low crime.
Jackson Heights, Greenvies and  Menisa, .

WEST EDMONTON
There are plenty of excellent, family friendly areas in West Edmonton.
(Some of these have only been built in recent years as the city expands.
Some of the best you could consider are 
Dechene, Gariepy, Glastonbury. Jamieson Place, Laurier Heights, Potter Greens,
Quesnell Heights, Rio Terrace, Wedgewood Heights, Westridge,

Crimes in Edmonton tend to be concentrated in some north eastern neighbourhoods 
and these are overwhelmingly drug related.
Some areas with a reputation for higher crime levels in the north east are
Abbotsfield,
Beverly,
Hermitage and
Norwood.
(The downtown area also has problems after dark – particularly in the east – Chinatown
and McCauley.)

GOOD CHOICES IN THE NORTH EAST INCLUDE
Matt Berry and Hollick-Kenyon

Crime rates in Edmonton are above average for Canadian cities 
– although slightly lower than Vancouver, it is approximately 50% higher than Calgary
and Montreal and has over double the crime rate of Toronto.
The neighbourhoods we’ve identified all have much lower than average crime rates
and should offer an excellent starting point for families relocating to Edmonton.
NOTE: Crime rates are collected differently from different cities.
Edmonton includes all forms of assault
while some places only count assault resulting in bodily harm.
