About This Quiz

Just as Canadian citizens each have their own personality, so do the cities they live in. Toronto is world-famous for its fashion and for always being ahead of trends — traits that are inherent in the people who inhabit the city, as well. Vancouver is laid-back, fitness-obsessed with a just a hint of visible wealth, it's not uncommon to see joggers with messy hairstyles wearing $700 athleisure running outfits. Montreal is brimming with artistic talent and incredible food, traits which are reflected in the bohemian lifestyle of its residents. These are just a handful of examples using Canada's largest cities — for this quiz we want to know which slightly smaller city (with its own big personality!) you match closest with.

These questions will ask about many facets of your personality, some of which you might never have thought about before. We'll dig deep into your passions, your strengths, your fears and yes, your weaknesses. Keep your answers as honest as possible, and by the time you're finished we'll be able to tell you the exact Canadian city that shares your unique personality. If you don't live there already, you'll certainly want to visit after taking this quiz — you may even find others who are just like you as you explore what the city has to offer.
