  • UN Ranks Canada #7 Happiest Country in 2017

    The United Nations (UN) released its 2017 World Happiness Report in March 2017 and ranked Canada the #7 happiest country in the world!

     

    The team of experts who worked with the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network surveyed people in 156 countries regarding their perceptions of happiness.

     

    Several factors were used to measure “happiness” including: real GDP per capita; freedom of people to make life choices; healthy life expectancy at birth; perception of corruption; generosity; and diversity.

     

    According to the 2017 World Happiness Report, the top 10 happiest countries this year are #1 Norway, #2 Denmark, #3 Iceland, #4 Switzerland, #5 Finland, #6 The Netherlands, #7 Canada, #8 New Zealand, #9 Australia, and #10 Sweden.

     

    As one of the most multicultural countries in the world, Canada received especially high marks for diversity, with the UN report declaring, “Highly diverse societies, such as Canada, have been able to achieve relatively high levels of social trust through programs aimed at promoting multiculturalism and inter-ethnic understanding.”

     

    Approximately one out of every five people who live in Canada is foreign-born, which helps to make Canadians some of the most tolerant, immigrant-friendly people on Earth, since many residents of Canada are immigrants or have family and friends who are immigrants.

     

    On a related note, people who live in Canada tend to perceive that they have good social support among other Canadians, which is also important for immigrants who are becoming established in their new country.

     

    Thus, if you and your family are seeking happiness in life, you might want to move to Canada!
