This Vancouver Island town is officially one of the friendliest places in Canada


There’s no shortage of politeness and warmth in Canada – it’s practically our main export!

But when it comes to determining the best of the best, online travel agency Expedia has come up with a list of the country’s 25 most friendly cities, towns, and communities.

They surveyed a total of 750 destinations in Canada and compiled this ranking based on online reviews.

Turns out, the #3 most friendly place in the country is none other than Vancouver Island’s very own Tofino. “The beautiful waves and relaxed atmosphere certainly make an impression on visitors,” reads the description, and we couldn’t agree more!

The list also features Ucluelet (#15), Courtenay (#17), and Victoria (#23).
