  • Canadian Cities Among the Most Livable in the World!

    In August 2014, the London-based Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released its annual list of the world’s “most livable cities” and once again included three Canadian cities in the top ten. The Economist researchers evaluate 140 major cities around the globe each year based on five key “livability” factors (culture and environment; education; health care; infrastructure; and stability) and give each city an overall score on a scale ranging from a low of zero to a high of 100. This year, as was the case in August 2013, the EIU experts ranked Vancouver the 3rd most livable city in the world, while Toronto came in 4th place and Calgary tied with the Australian city of Adelaide for the fifth highest rating. It is not surprising, therefore, that thousands of people who immigrate to Canada each year decide to settle in Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary – some of the world’s top five most livable cities!

     

    Growing numbers of individuals and families in different regions of the globe want to move to Canada so they can also enjoy the high standard of living found in Canadian cities, towns and rural areas. Many people who immigrate to Canada, particularly from the Pacific Rim area, prefer to live in Vancouver, the largest city in the Canadian province of British Columbia, due to its relatively close proximity to their home countries, the large immigrant communities there (particularly from Asia), many economic opportunities, incredible lifestyle and spectacular scenery.

     

    Thousands of foreign nationals who move to Canada also make their homes in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), which includes Toronto (Canada’s largest city) and several surrounding municipalities, such as Mississauga, Brampton, Richmond Hill, and Hamilton (all of which have substantial immigrant populations). In addition to being one of the most cosmopolitan Canadian cities, Toronto is also attractive to people who immigrate to Canada because of the great career options available there, various entertainment venues, cultural activities, educational opportunities, plus magnificent Niagara Falls is just a short drive away!

     

    Between Vancouver and Toronto is Calgary, located in the scenic province of Alberta. Calgary is a top destination for many who immigrate to Canada, not only due to the abundance of jobs there and elsewhere in Alberta, but also because it is situated next to the beautiful Canadian Rockies and many wonderful places to enjoy the “Great Outdoors.” Whether you want to live in an exciting big city, peaceful small town or picturesque rural area, you can enjoy a high quality of life if you move to Canada!
