Maclean’s ranks a total of 415 communities across the country in this annual survey. This year though, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, working remotely was factored in. The publication says these revamped rankings assume remote work is here to stay in some form and asked where people should move to if they’re not tied to an office and a commute.

The City of Lethbridge was listed at 133 and Lethbridge County ranked at 234. Those are significant improvements from the 2019 rankings.

The highest listed Alberta city in which to live and work this year is Edmonton at number 5.
