Guelph No. 1 on Santa Scale

December 16, 2011

Caring Community

The Martin Prosperity Institute (Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto) has developed a ranking to identify the top 10 list of places that would best suit Santa Claus.

I kid you not.

They looked at five variables of Santa’s lifestyle:

  • Number of cookie factories per capita
  • Number of milk producers per capita
  • Number of doll, toy and game manufacturing establishments per capita
  • Number of postal service workers/couriers per capita (to receive and reply to wish lists)
  • Department stores per capita

Guess which city in Canada and the U.S. is number one on the Santa Scale?
