Minnesota’s assisted living facilities are overseen by Assisted Living Licensure, a part of the Health Regulation Division of the Minnesota Department of Health. In addition to its licensing responsibilities, ALL handles on-site inspections and enforcement of related state policies. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Little Canada

  • Little Canada is a somewhat more expensive place to live than the average U.S. city. The sales tax rate of 7.9% is only slightly higher than the U.S. average of 7.3%, but there’s a significant difference when it comes to income taxes: Little Canada’s income tax rate is 7.1%, while the national average is 4.6%. Overall, the cost of living in Little Canada is 5.7% higher than elsewhere in the nation, although it’s worth noting that the cost of health care specifically is 21% lower than the national average.
  • Residents of Little Canada have exceptional choices in health care, as four of the state’s top 10 hospitals are located in the Twin Cities: Minneapolis is home to Abbott Northwestern Hospital and M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center, while St. Paul hosts United Hospital and Regions Hospital. According to U.S. News & World Report, Abbott Northwestern is ranked as one of the top 50 hospitals in the entire nation for cardiology and one of the top 40 for neurology.
  • Like most places in Minnesota, Little Canada gets very chilly in the winter. Highs rarely get out of the mid-20s from December to February, with evening and nighttime temperatures regularly dropping to single digits or below zero. The city sees plenty of snow, with 53 inches per year against a national average of 28. That said, seniors who don’t mind harsh winters are rewarded with pleasantly mild summers; average high temperatures range from the mid-70s to the low 80s from May to September.
  • Both violent crime and property crime are lower than usual in this city. Elsewhere in the nation, the average property crime rate is 35.4 on a 100-point scale; in Little Canada, it’s 29.8. The violent crime rate looks even better when compared to national trends; the U.S. average is 22.7/100, but in Little Canada, it’s just 10/100.
  • In 2022, Minnesota became the 10th state to join AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. This partnership helps states improve quality of life for their seniors through pillars that include community support, social inclusion, civic participation and more.
