British Columbia’s provincial capital has been named the most romantic city in Canada for the third consecutive year, according to a new ranking by Amazon Canada.

The westernmost province dominated the first two spots on the list, with Victoria at first place and North Vancouver at second. The city of Vancouver ranked ninth, behind Calgary at fifth place but just ahead of Edmonton at tenth place. Toronto and Montreal, Canada’s most populated cities, did not make the list.

The electronic commerce giant says its ranking of the top 20 Canadian cities are based on data from its sexual wellness store. Cities that rank the highest purchased the most romance novels, relationship books, romantic comedy DVDs, romantic CDs, jewelry and sexual wellness products.
