Port Hardy was named the 16th “Most Caring Town in Canada” out of a list of 40 cities and towns across the country.
This was compiled and published by Expedia.ca, an American travel company that owns and operates several international global online travel brands, in an Oct. 2 blog post.
The company claims to have used “social listening to find which cities were most tied to tags like ‘#caring,’ ‘#charity,’ and ‘#volunteer.’”
Port Hardy landed the 16th spot, sandwiched in-between Kelowna, BC at number 15, and Kitchener, Ontario at 17th. “Call it a port of safe harbour, if you will. Port Hardy, British Columbia, is always looking for opportunities to make a difference for the community,” read the entry. It then cited Port Hardy’s Better at Home program, Port Hardy Fire Rescue and the Quatse River Hatchery as examples of good will in the town.
“Whether these places make a difference with their active volunteering, food bank donating, or sustainability promoting, you can count on these towns caring about the world around them.
Ranked in order of number of mentions, here are some of the most giving cities in Canada,” read the blog post.
Lake Louise and Banff Alberta the number one spot on the list followed by Athabasca Alberta at number two and Windsor, Nova Scotia at number three.
