Winnipeg continues to lose ground in the annual best-cities-to-live-in survey by MoneySense magazine.

The Manitoba capital was ranked 19th out of 201 Canadian cities this year by the Toronto based personal finance and lifestyle magazine. That’s down from 16th a year ago and 10th in 2012.

Winnipeg was also ranked 5th on this year’s list of Canada’s 15 best large cities in which to live, behind Calgary, Ottawa, Edmonton and Quebec City.

Four other Manitoba cities were also included in this year’s survey. Brandon jumped to 42nd place from 91 in 2013. Steinbach dropped to 85 from 61,Thompson climbed to 121 from 164, and Portage la Prairie rose to 144 from 160.

St. Albert, a satellite community outside of Edmonton, knocked Calgary out of the top spot this year. Calgary slipped to second. Rounding out the top five cities were Strathcona County, Alta., Ottawa and Burlington, Ont.

The best-cities ranking is based on hard data such as employment, house prices, crime, weather, and household income.
