Richest Cities In Canada For 2018: Top 100 Wealthiest Places

With an average household net worth of $4.5 million, West Vancouver was ranked the richest city in Canada, according to newly released MoneySense figures. The city with the lowest average household net worth in Canada is Thompson, Manitoba, at $152,000.

Westmount, Quebec, is a distant second. The difference is so pronounced that each resident in West Vancouver could afford to buy a fleet of luxury cars and still retain the title of being the richest city in Canada.

And it’s followed largely by other western cities: Rocky View County, AB; King, ON; Mont-Royal, QC; Oak Bay, BC; Foothills No. 31, AB; Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON; North Saanich, BC; and North Vancouver, BC.

The province of British Columbia alone accounts for 4 out of Canada’s 10 highest-income cities (25 out of 100 richest cities in Canada for 2018).
