While it’s an open secret that Canadians are some of the most generous people in the world, we were a little curious to see how cities in Canada stack up against each other. And thanks to GoFundMe’s latest Giving Report, we now know! It’s the most heartwarming competition we can think of, so let’s check it out!
Canada joined Ireland, Australia, the United Kingdom and America as those most generous countries in the world this year. Then, GoFundMe looked at the average number of donations, per capita, to figure out which cities were the most generous. At least on GoFundMe.
If 2020 was a year in crisis, 2021 was The Year of Gratitude.
Here’s how we saw people help one another in 2021.

Here are the most generous cities in Canada for 2021:
- North Vancouver, BC
- Burlington, Ont.
- Vancouver, BC
- Kamloops, BC
- Kelowna, BC
- New Westminster, BC
- Brampton, Ont.
- Belleville, Ont.
- Victoria, BC
- Guelph, Ont.
Well, turns out that folks in BC and Ontario really stepped up to the plate this year, helping out with everything from wildfire relief to Residential School-related initiatives and anti-racism campaigns. What do we hope for next year? That’s easy, we want to see a city from every province on here!
