Ahead of Valentine’s Day each year, Amazon Canada reveals a list of the most romantic cities in Canada.
In a nutshell, Amazon scans and compares data from January 1, 2017 to January 1, 2018 on a per capita basis in cities with more than 80,000 residents.
The data looks at sales of romance novels (both print and Kindle editions), romantic comedies, relationship books, jewellery and sexual wellness products.
Based on the data, Amazon determines and compiles a list of the top 20 romantic cities across the nation.
For the sixth straight year, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, has taken the number one spot. Right behind it was Abbotsford, and Whitehorse to wrap up the top 3.
