If you're looking for life satisfaction, these places will put a smile on your face.
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.”
We’re offering provincial results for your perusal, and you may find a couple of interesting omissions in the top 10 — no British Columbia, no Ontario, which finished 11th and 12th respectively, with only Nunavut trailing. 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.
* We used statistics provided for an average happiness rating between 2003 and 2011, but it bears mentioning that in 2011 alone, the Yukon topped the happiness list. Must be all those blackflies.

More Researchers have only recently found the longest large mammal migration in the continental United States: Mule deer migrate 150 miles (241 kilometers) in western Wyoming each year. And it's no easy task for them—barriers include highways, fences, tough terrain, and bodies of water. In this video by Joe Riis, a National Geographic grantee and regular contributor, see the modern-day obstacles mule deer overcome to make the migratory trek that they likely have been making for generations.
