I wish there was a list for Canada!
Once I am finished school I would like to find a job in the city my mom lives in. I think having the extra help will make that the best city for me to live in! :D
I think the best city for a single momma is the one where her community support is - be it family or friends. Sure, good job choices and a good cost of living is important but what is MOST important when you are raising kids on your own is having really great human support around you. Money helps you buy support but it's not the same as having lots of people around you who love you & your kids.
I'm in CA and their two choices here (Fresno and Bakersfield) would never, ever be ones I would choose. They might be going off of violent crime rates but I am pretty sure that the petty crime in those areas and the general financial and social depression in both areas is quite high.

I am wondering about this report. I have just moved from Florida and it is really hard to find work in both the areas that they indicated.
Although, Ft. Myers and Port St. Lucie both had a HUGE housing bust so homebuying is extremely affordable in those areas. My father purchased a home in Port St. Lucie for 65k, huge house with a giant yard in a great neighborhood...
