Maclean’s ranks Delta as best community in Metro Vancouver

DELTA has been named the best community in Metro Vancouver in the 2021 ranking by Maclean’s.

Comfortably in the top 10 in BC and the top 12% across Canada, Delta is renowned for its low crime rate, great weather, and strong sense of community. Delta was also rated highly on internet access, amenities, and population growth.

Delta Mayor George V. Harvie said on Wednesday: “The past year has been extremely challenging for all of us, but we are very pleased to see our hard work be recognized by Maclean’s. From the beginning, we have been focused on keeping our community safe while providing the services and supports necessary to get through the pandemic together. Our philosophy of continuous improvement and working together shows in everything we do and I hope our residents and businesses take pride in their contributions to this tremendous result.”

Following two years in a row as Metro Vancouver’s second best community, Delta’s strong community-based response to the pandemic helped it achieve top spot this year. The methodology was adjusted this year to reflect the realities of the pandemic, including the prevalence of working from home.
