  • Canada Ranked #1 in the World For Personal Freedom

    According to the 2015 Legatum Global Prosperity Index, published in November 2015, Canada is the top country in the world for personal freedom. The London-based Legatum Institute evaluated 142 countries around the globe based on eight major factors and then assigned each country an overall prosperity score. The factors that were assessed included: economy; entrepreneurship and opportunity; governance; education; health; safety and security; social capital; and personal freedom.


    On these factors, Canada was ranked 8th in the world for its economy; 15th for entrepreneurship and opportunity; 7th for governance; 2nd for education; 11th for health; 9th for safety and security; 6th for social capital; and #1 for personal freedom. When all eight factors were taken into account, the Legatum Institute researchers considered Canada to be the #6 country on the planet for prosperity out of the 142 countries examined.


    In regards to personal freedom, the 2015 Legatum Global Prosperity Index reported that “94% of Canadians believe that they have the freedom to choose the course of their own lives – the fifth highest in the world.” The report also declared Canada to be the #1 country in the world in terms of tolerance toward immigrants, with 92% of Canadians saying they “think the country is a good place for immigrants.” Furthermore, Canada is the 5th most tolerant country toward ethnic minorities (who may or may not be immigrants), with 92% of Canadians indicating that they are tolerant of ethnic minorities.


    With one out of every five Canadian residents foreign-born (seven million of Canada’s 35 million people), and an even larger number of Canadians being the children or grandchildren of immigrants, this positive attitude toward newcomers and ethnic minorities is understandable. Are you and your family looking for the freedom to make your dreams come true in one of the world’s most prosperous countries? Then you should move to Canada – the “land of the free” and the #1 most immigrant-friendly country on Earth!
