How Does Winnipeg Measure Up in Canada?

Whether you’re contemplating a move to Winnipeg or you’ve been a resident for years, you want to know what this illustrious city has to offer. How does Winnipeg compare to its Canadian cousins? The team at Vivintsource began with the assumption that Winnipeggers’ quality of life likely improves with greater amounts of available community resources for public education, health, and safety. We then carefully reviewed Google Maps data for every capital city in the country and discovered how many hospitals, police departments, fire stations, schools, and community centers exist per capita to determine each city’s rank in the Great White North.

Winnipeg’s Overall Report Card

After considering the Google Maps data in each of Canada’s 10 capital cities, we gave the capital city of Manitoba an overall GPA of 1.98*, or a passing “C” grade. Winnipeg earned a “C+” for hospitals, a “C” for police departments, an “F” for fire stations, a “C+” for schools, and a “B+” for community centers. That means residents of Winnipeg have fair access to community resources per capita, but the city still has plenty of room to grow.

Winnipeg Community Resource Breakdown

To give you a visual on how Winnipeg fairs for community resources compared to its fellow capital cities, we compiled the data for each category to display Canada’s best and worst performers.
