Guelph is high on the list of places to move in Canada for new Canadians, according to MoneySense magazine.

The Royal City made its top 10 list of best communities for new Canadians in part due to low unemployment, low cost of rent for a one bedroom apartment and for its percentage of immigrants as part of the total population, which the magazine placed at 17 per cent. 

Nearby Waterloo also received high honours, ranked the tenth best place to live in Canada overall. 

Guelph was rated 32nd in that category.
