About St. Catharines

Resting in Canada’s Niagara Region is the large but quaint city of St. Catharines. This lakeside city is a gem of Lake Superior and is home to 418,000 metropolitan residents. With 96.13 square kilometres of land, St. Catharines packs a lot into a small space.

St. Catharines is attractive to students, young people, and retirees for its affordable cost of living. Its insanely low tax rates at 1.46% and the accessible housing market are ideal for all-size families. In addition, the average price of a home in St. Catharines averages around $825,000, making home ownership much more possible than in other Canadian cities.

The city of St. Catharines is best known for its lush green landscape and populous outdoor activities. However, many tourists and newcomers overlook the green community because of its proximity to Niagara Falls, though they shouldn't. For a quiet hidden escape along Lake Superior, visit the beautiful sights of St. Catharine.
