Balancing professional and personal life might be a bit easier in Halton Hills.

A new report from real estate data website Point2 reveals that Halton Hills is among the top places in Ontario for the best work-life balance, though in the region it trails behind Oakville and Burlington.

Point2 ranked the country’s top 100 largest municipalities for the best work-life balance based on 30 key metrics — covering work intensity, health and well-being and livability. The study looked at factors such as work hours, life expectancy, perceived life stress, air quality, crime severity index and cost of living.

Here’s the top 10 list in Ontario: 

1. Burlington
2. Aurora
3. Newmarket
4. Caledon
5. Oakville
6. Halton Hills
7. Milton
8. Ottawa
9. Vaughan
10. Mississauga

According to the study, Burlington has a balanced mix of positive health perceptions, with 93 per cent of residents reporting “high levels of life satisfaction.” 

Halton Hills also lands in the top 20 list nationally. The top-ranking municipality in Canada is Lévis in Quebec, while Sarnia comes in last.
