A list ranking the richest places in Canada has been released, and some of the findings may surprise you.

The list by Macleans is based on average net worth.

It takes into account your assets, such as investments, your car, your home and even your artwork and then subtracts your debts.

Not surprisingly, West Vancouver is on top with an average net worth of just over $4-million.

Locally, Guelph ranks the highest at 23rd with a net worth of slightly under $1.2-million.

In Waterloo Region, the townships lead the way.

Woolwich is 28th at just over $1,000,000, Wellesley checks in at 57th with $820-thousand in average net worth and Wilmot is 76th at a shade under $750-thousand.

Waterloo is the only one of the tri-cities to crack the top 100 with an average net worth of $710-thousand – good for 93rd on the list.
