  • Canada #2 Best Country in the World For 2016

    According to a survey of 16,000 people around the globe conducted by US News & World Report, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and BAV Consulting, Canada is ranked as the #2 best country in the world for 2016, after #1 Germany and ahead of #3 United Kingdom, #4 United States, #5 Sweden, #6 Australia, #7 Japan, #8 France, #9 Netherlands, and #10 Denmark.


    This large survey conducted in four regions of the Earth measured 65 country characteristics which were grouped into nine major categories: adventure, citizenship, cultural influence, entrepreneurship, heritage, open for business, movers, power, and quality of life. Countries received a score and ranking for each major category as well as an overall ranking.  


    “Adventure” examined to what extent a country has a nice climate and is considered fun, friendly and beautiful. On this category, Canada was rated #15 in the world.


    “Citizenship” measured such issues as gender equality, how much a country cares about the environment and human rights, the level of religious freedom, trustworthiness, how progressive the country is, distribution of political power, and respect for property rights. On these factors, Canada came in 2nd place.


    “Cultural Influence” investigated whether a country is perceived as possessing a modern, happy, fashionable, trendy, prestigious culture, with culturally significant entertainment. Canada was listed as #11 in this category.


    “Entrepreneurship” looked at how well-educated a country’s population is, its technological expertise, the skills of its workforce, its level of innovation and entrepreneurship, how easy it is to access capital, how developed its infrastructure and legal framework are, and the transparency of business practices. Canada was ranked #5 in the world for having conditions favorable for starting a business.


    Canada placed 29th for “Heritage” which involved such items as the number of cultural attractions, good food, and having a rich history.


    “Movers” measured how dynamic, unique, or distinctive a country is considered to be. On this topic, Canada ranked #34 in the world.


    The “Open for Business” category focused on a country’s bureaucracy, whether its tax environment was favorable, the level of corruption, transparency of governmental practices, and how cheap the cost of manufacturing is. According to this survey, Canada is the #3 best country for businesses to operate in.


    “Power” evaluated the global leadership of a country, the strength of its military and international alliances, and its economic and political influence around the world. On this measure, Canada came in 11th place.


    Canada was ranked #1 in the world for “Quality of Life” which assessed to what extent a country is affordable, family friendly, economically and politically stable, boasts a good job market, and possesses a well-developed public health system and education system.   


    Thus, while Canada received respectable ratings in all nine of the key categories of this global survey, it was particularly perceived as having the #1 highest quality of life on Earth and being among the top places on the planet for citizenship and business.


    As this survey reveals, people who live in Canada enjoy a high standard of living in a scenic country which guarantees freedoms and offers great educational, employment and entrepreneurial options. These and many other factors have helped to make Canada one of the most popular immigration destinations for skilled foreign workers and their families.
