So much for being Canada’s city of love, Toronto didn’t even make Amazon’s list of Canada’s most romantic cities.

For the seventh year in a row, Victoria, B.C. was named the most romantic city in Canada. Toronto didn’t even make the list.

The list was compiled by comparing sales data from January 1, 2018 to January 1, 2019 on a per capita basis in cities with more than 20,000 residents. This data took into account sales of romance novels (both print and Kindle editions), romantic comedies, relationship books, jewellery and sexual wellness products.

In addition to loving romantic novels, Canadians also seem to have an affinity for rom-coms starring Julia Roberts. For the second year in a row, Pretty Woman was the best selling romantic film amongst Canadian consumers.
