VANCOUVER -- Vancouver's trendy Yaletown is the sexiest place to live in Canada, according to FastLife.ca, a speed-dating company.
It said it surveyed 20,000 people across the country on attractiveness and popularity.
It found Winnipeg is Canada's sexiest city, with an average ranking of 51, while Vancouver follows at 49 and Calgary is third at 48.
Toronto and Edmonton tie for fourth place with 46, while Montreal is in the second-lowest spot with 42. At the bottom of the list is the very unsexy Ottawa, at 40.
It wasn't clear from the survey where Victoria ranked. But according to its website, FastLife holds invitation-only speed dating events once a month in the capital district for people aged 20 to 50.
Yaletown ranks as the sexiest neighbourhood at 69, followed by West Vancouver and Kitsilano.
Yaletown's rating is three points higher than the runner-up, Toronto's Yonge and Eglington area. Third is Osborne Village in Winnipeg, and fourth is Kensington in Calgary.
The sexiest suburbs are Richmond in B.C., Newmarket in Ontario, and Châteauguay in Quebec.
