  • Move to Canada for a High Standard of Living!

    What do Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary all share in common? All three of these Canadian cities have been ranked among the world’s top five most livable cities for the past four years in a row! According to The Global Liveability Report 2017, which was released by The Economist in August 2017, Vancouver is the #3 “Most Livable City in the World” for 2017, while Toronto is ranked #4 and Calgary and Adelaide (Australia) are both tied for #5, out of the 140 cities that were evaluated around the globe. Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary have now maintained these same impressive rankings for quality of life in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017! Thus, if you and your family are thinking about where to live in Canada, you may want to consider moving to one of these incredible Canadian cities.

     

    Every year, the London-based Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) assesses the quality of life in 140 major cities all over the world according to five major measures. The cities receive scores for each of the five measures (culture and environment,  education, healthcare, infrastructure, and stability) on a scale ranging from a low of zero to an “ideal” (perfect) score of 100. An overall score (0-100) and ranking is also calculated for each city. Vancouver received an overall score of 97.3 out of 100, Toronto was given 97.2 and Calgary attained a score of 96.6. By comparison, #1 Melbourne (Australia) was awarded with 97.5 and #2 Vienna (Austria) obtained 97.4 out 100 points possible. As can be seen, there was not much of a difference in the overall scores of the world’s top five most livable cities.

     

    Nonetheless, some cities scored higher on certain measures than others. For example, Vancouver (British Columbia) received a perfect score of 100% on three out of the five measures of liveability (culture and environment, education, and healthcare). Both Toronto (Ontario) and Calgary (Alberta) attained “ideal” ratings of 100% for education, healthcare and stability. The “bottom line” is that people who live in Canada generally enjoy a high standard of living. This is a major reason why approximately 300,000 immigrants move to Canada every year. Canada is a multicultural country, with a beautiful environment, highly-rated education system, free healthcare, modern infrastructure and is one of the most stable and peaceful places on the planet.
