It’s Official: Inglewood is Canada’s Best Neighbourhood

The winners of the 2014 Great Places in Canada contest have been announced and Inglewood made the podium

The judges have spoken and it’s official: Inglewood is one of five locations named in this year’s 2014 Great Places in Canada contest

This year, the contest received more than 14,000 votes from Canadians all across the country during a seven-month period. Andrea Winkler, a judge in this year’s contest, explains why Inglewood was voted the best neighbourhood in Canada by the panel. 

“It is a great neighbourhood to visit but also, and perhaps most importantly, a great neighbourhood to live,” says Winkler. “Inglewood has the bedrock elements of an inclusive community with a large affordable housing stock, a range of transportation options, support for local businesses and community facilities.

“The jury was also impressed by the expression of local culture from night markets to celebrating local artisans in everyday objects,” says Winkler.

While Inglewood won the title of best neighbourhood as selected by a panel of experts, the people of Canada voted and named Old East Village in London, ON the best neighbourhood. The title of great street went to La rue du Petit-Champlain of Quebec, QC and great public space was awarded to the Antigonish Town and Country Library of Antigonish, NS. 

Here are just a few reasons why we love Inglewood.
