- Access to population
- Transportation network
- Cost of doing business
- Supply chain
- Cost of housing
- Family support
Here’s the final ranking across the 17 Metro Vancouver municipalities:
North Vancouver City did the best of the three North Shore cities, but still scored low in the cost of housing and family support categories. North Vancouver District was third-last and West Vancouver, dead last.
