  • North America’s Best Quality of Life in Vancouver

    Five Canadian cities have been listed among the top 50 cities for quality of life in 2016 by the Mercer international human resources firm, with Vancouver ranked #5 in the world and #1 in North America.

     

    In addition to Vancouver’s impressive rating, Mercer also considered Toronto the #15 top city on Earth for quality of life in 2016, with Ottawa #17, Montreal #23 and Calgary #32 out of the 230 cities evaluated around the globe.

     

    For the past 18 years, Mercer researchers have assessed and ranked cities based on various “quality of life” indicators, such as their political and social environment; economic environment; socio-cultural environment; medical and health considerations; schools and education; public services and transportation; recreation; consumer goods; housing; and natural environment.

     

    During the last several years, Vancouver and other Canadian cities have been listed among the best places on the planet to live in the annual Mercer rankings.  

     

    According to the 2016 Mercer report, “Quality of Living remains high in North America, where Canadian cities dominate the top of the list.” The survey further declared, “Canadian cities all rank high for personal safety, with Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver sharing 16th place, whereas no US cities make the top 50.”
