Mississauga, Canada, November 10, 2016 --( Are you looking ahead to 2017 as the year you finally downsize from your current home and move into some "snazzy new digs"? Looking for the ideal adult lifestyle, where you don't have to deal with the bustle and noise of life in the suburbs? Want to know the best place to invest the equity from your family home in a retirement bungalow or condo that gives you that optimal freedom you've been dreaming of?

Comfort Life announces its "best places to retire" series for the upcoming year. The communities on the list were pulled based on an aggregate of other sources, along with original research into the communities themselves, with – most important of all – testimonials from residents themselves.

What makes a community the best? The combination of reasonable cost of living, safety and security, and reasonable proximity to a variety of attractions. The series begins with two of the most populous and popular places to retire in Canada: British Columbia, and Southwestern Ontario. Here's a brief look at some of the best places to retire in Canada.
