Expedia.ca is out with the "Top 40 Happiest Places In Canada" and Wiarton is right near the top of the list!

Author Carolyn Albee sorted through over one hundred thousand social media conversations for hashtags like #cheerful, #blessed, and #happy, to find the happiest places in the country.

Albee says Canada consistently ranks among the top ten happiest countries in the world, and there are tons of reasons why.

According to her research, the happiest city in Canada is Lake Louise, Banff Alberta.

She says no human can resist the cozy lodges, gorgeous vistas, and crisp mountain air of Banff and Lake Louise.

There were over 4.7 million Instagram posts about the area.

Second on the list is Tofino, B.C.

There were just over 1.8 million Instagram posts about Canada's surfing capital.

Albee says you can head to Chesterman Beach to catch a wave, then warm up with one of Chocolate Tofino's famous hot chocolates while sitting by a beach bonfire.

Number 3 on the top 4 Happiest places in Canada is Wiarton.

There were 765 thousand Instagram posts about the town.

Carolyn Albee believes the Wiarton Willie Festival, Ontario's biggest winter festival is one reason residents and visitors are so happy.

No other town of city in southwestern Ontario made the top 40 list by Expedia.ca.

South Bruce Peninsula Mayor Janice Jackson says the only thing that surprised her, was that Wiarton was not number 1 on the list.

She says people are discovering what Wiarton has to offer and Jackson says they are ready for an influx of visitors in 2018.
