New report says Lethbridge ranks 24th in best cities for students across Canada

A new study says Lethbridge ranked in the middle of the pack when it came to Canada’s best cities for students. According to a report by the Montreal-based data company, HelloSafe, Lethbridge finished 24th out of 47 cities. Kingston, Montreal and Vancouver cracked the top three spots on the list.

Alexandre Desoutter, a spokesperson from the organization explained the criteria they used to generate the full report.

“So that’s a report based on four big families of criteria. There is academic excellence, quality of life, quality of student life, and attractiveness. Those four categories are divided into 16 sub criteria, all based upon public sources of data that we put together. And that makes that big classification, that big ranking. We rank cities and not universities. So it applies to all the levels of studies.”

Officials with HelloSafe say the city sitting at the bottom of the standings for students in Canada was Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
