Love how Montreal is developing. I have high hopes for Rene-Levesque Boulevard. It's the wide avenue on the extreme right side of the photo.

Amazing pics. Toronto wins by a landslide for me given the sheer amount of skyscrapers and density. Montreal and Vancouver are beautiful in their own right as well.

This is like the New York vs everywhere else comparison in the United States. Based on the sheer number of skyscrapers Toronto seems like the natural choice for the number one spot in Canada but to me Calgary's skyline just "looks better" (mountains in the background, office towers outpacing condos etc.). I realize that this is very subjective so hope no-one will take umbrage with my comments. That said, I'm glad this survey allowed for more than one favourite so I did give T-Dot it's due.

No one would take umbrage; it is a thread to discuss our favourite Canadian skylines!! It is entirely subjective. For me, after Toronto I would list Montreal and Vancouver tied; I like them both for entirely different reasons. Calgary I would put in fourth spot. A picture I took a couple of hours ago here in Toronto:

There are so many fabulous photos in this thread I could get lost in it for hours on end. A big thanks from me to all the contributors.

Quebec City is simply amazing. A favourite vacation destination to be sure! Those shots are downright seductive.
