The best community in B.C to live in - according to Maclean's magazine - is Salmon Arm.

Salmon Arm ranked at #6 for the country and #1 in all of B.C.

The rankings look at factors like weather, crime, unemployment, incomes and more.

Mayor Alan Harrison says that the new rankings made for a good read "In some ways I'm not surprised, we know what a great place we live in and we feel so fortunate to be here, but to be the #1 most desirable place to live in B.C and #6 in Canada is really amazing and really a pat on the back for everyone in our city."

He says the list will help marketing for Salmon Arm "Maclean's and their surveys are renowned and held in very high regard, so from a marketing point of view it fights right in with out 'Small City, Big Ideas' slogan."

West Kelowna was the 2nd best B.C city, coming in at #12.

Salmon Arm was also #1 on the list for affordable homes.
