Ottawa’s Centre for the Study of Living Standards (and no, we didn’t know it existed either) has released a research paper wordily entitled, “Canadians are Happy and Getting Happier: An overview of Life Satisfaction in Canada, 2003 -2011.”

I guess superiority complexes don’t make a person happy. (I kid, I kid! I’m a Torontonian myself, folks.) We think each of our happy provinces has something special to offer, so here they are in descending order.
