Top selection method for African immigrants
To find the best cities for new Canadians, experts used the same ten categories as the main ranking of Canada’s Best Cities. They just adjusted the weight of some of them based on what they believe immigrants find particularly important.
Categories such as the labor market, affordable rents, and proximity to an airport gained weight in this analysis. And a new category was added, that of linguistic diversity. Cities with many residents who speak languages other than English and French scored the highest in this regard.
The choice of the city where you will live in Canada is part of a wide consultancy that Canada Without Borders offers to Africans. This complete consulting process can take anywhere from eight to 18 months. See below which cities are the most welcoming and promising for African immigrants in Canada. All have multiculturalism and low unemployment rates in common. Despite being more expensive, Toronto is among them due to its economic strength.

Some selected cities in Canada you should consider include;
- Banff, Alberta
- Winnipeg, Manitoba
- Thunder Bay, Ontario
- Montreal, Quebec
- St. John’s, Newfoundland
Technically, the resort town of Banff isn’t big enough to be a town – but it’s so beautiful that we didn’t dare leave it off this list.
Many visitors head to Canada specifically to see the majestic Rockies up close and personal but it does not stop there. Just an hour and a half from Calgary, Banff is easily accessible and undeniably stunningly scenic.
The town of Banff is located in Banff National Park, Canada’s largest and most popular national park. As fun as it is to wander the streets of downtown Banff, the real action is outside of town and within the park boundaries. From skiing in local areas to exploring Johnston Canyon, from hiking in the mountains to horseback riding in the backcountry, Banff is a mecca for adventurers and nature lovers.
The seventh largest city in Canada – and the largest urban area in Manitoba – Winnipeg is a great destination for those looking to get a taste of the country’s heartland.
As Manitoba’s capital city, it plays an important commercial and cultural role and is home to many institutions, architecture, attractions, and things to do that should definitely be high on any visitor’s itinerary. Topping the list of the city’s notable cultural attractions is the strikingly designed Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Opened in 2008, this state-of-the-art museum offers exhibitions and collections that describe human rights issues, as well as some of the best views of the city from the central Tower of Hope.
Other cultural attractions worth seeing include the Manitoba Museum, which showcases the province’s human and natural history, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery, which has an impressive collection of Canadian and international art.
Thunder Bay, Ontario
From its humble beginnings as a fur trading post in the early 1800s, the Northern Ontario town of Thunder Bay has transformed into a wonderful tourist destination that is growing in popularity among domestic and international tourists.
In fact, it is still possible to visit the city’s first real non-native settlement, the historic Fort William, which offers a fascinating insight into the lives and conditions of the time. Opened to the public as a “living museum” in the 1970s, it now consists of 42 faithfully reconstructed buildings, occupied by costumed guides who aim to describe the roles and lives of their “old days” characters.
Thunder Bay also boasts a spectacular waterfront, much of which has undergone major renovations in recent years. Stroll the promenades, and admire the sculptures and parks, all the while keeping an eye on the famous Sleeping Giant, a peninsula of land that really looks like a large man lying down and resting.
Since its founding in 1642 as a French mission station, Montreal (or Mont-Réal as it was then) has become important as both a world-class commercial and cultural center. Today, it is not only the second-largest city in Canada, but it is also the second-largest French-speaking city in the world, surpassed only by Paris,
As big as it is, Montreal, unlike many similarly sized cities in North America, has managed to preserve not only its unique character but also many of its oldest buildings and neighborhoods.
The best places to get a sense of “Old Montreal” are in Vieux-Montreal, the heart of the original old colonial city, with its attractive old townhouses; and the equally picturesque “Old Port” or Vieux-Port, with its beautiful promenade. Add to this historic character the city’s newer entertainment, museum, and art districts, and you’ll find no end of fun things to do in Montreal.
St. John’s, Newfoundland
Probably one of the most underrated cities on this list, St. John’s is simply a different place in Canada. From the local language and distinct Newfoundland accent to the colorful houses and rugged natural beauty of the coast, a visit to St. John’s almost feels like visiting a completely different country – in the best way.
As the easternmost city in North America, St. John’s has played several important roles in Canadian history. See Signal Hill, where Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal, and the spectacular The Rooms museum to learn about the significance of St. John in Canada’s historical wars and battles (even before Newfoundland was officially part of Canada).
Downtown St. John’s was ravaged by the Great Fire of 1892, but today downtown is a great place to shop window shop, grab a bite to eat, and pick up some unique souvenirs.
Visitors should also take time to explore the coast – whale and puffin sightings start just outside the city.
