People in Saskatchewan are the happiest in Western Canada, a new study suggests.
According to the study conducted by the Ottawa-based Centre for the Study of Living Standards, 92.7 per cent of Saskatchewan people report being satisfied or very satisfied with life in general.
That's higher than Alberta (92 per cent), Manitoba (91.6 per cent) or B.C. (91.1 per cent).
The centre based its report on numbers collected by Statistics Canada in its community health survey between 2003 and 2011.
Saskatchewan is not the happiest province however. People in Nova Scotia, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador were slightly more satisfied or very satisfied with life in general.
Meanwhile, Regina (94.3) is slightly higher on the happy scale than Saskatoon (92.6), a trend the centre says has been holding steady since at least 2003.
