    In the 2018 Best Countries report published on January 23, 2018, Canada was ranked as the world’s best country for quality of life in 2018.

     

    The Best Countries survey is conducted each year by US News and World Report, Y & R BAV Group, and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

     

    Researchers analyzed responses from 21,000 individuals in 80 countries who were asked to rate countries on 65 different measures which were then categorized into nine major indicators.  

     

    The key indicators used to measure global perceptions of countries were: adventure, citizenship, cultural influence, entrepreneurship, heritage, movers, open for business, power and quality of life.

     

    Canada received the highest rating of any country in the world for quality of life in 2018, which was the same conclusion reached by thousands of participants in the 2017 and 2016 global surveys.

     

    Overall, Canada was considered the #2 best place to live in the world for 2018, after Switzerland.

     

    Canadian citizenship also received the fourth highest appraisal, with only Norway, Switzerland and Denmark rated higher for this indicator.

     

    The 2018 Best Country report further found that Canada is viewed as the #7 top country in the world for business and for entrepreneurship.

     

    Additionally, US News & World Report revealed that Canada is perceived as the #3 country for education (after #1 United Kingdom and #2 United States).

     

    Canada is also ranked #2 in the world for transparency and is considered the #5 country for raising children, the #6 best place for women to live, and the #6 country for a comfortable retirement.

     

    In sum, people who live in Canada enjoy a high standard of living as indicated by global perceptions of a variety of measures.
