World’s Best Cities

Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto have been included in the list of top 10 most livable cities in the world for 2022 by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).

The EIU assessed 173 cities worldwide using different factors, such as Stability, Healthcare, Culture and Environment, Education, and Infrastructure.

A scale was used in which zero was the lowest possible score and 100 was the highest possible score that a city could receive for each factor as well as overall.

Calgary tied for third place with Zurich (Switzerland), receiving 95.0 for Stability, 100 for Healthcare, 90.0 for Culture and Environment, 100 for Education, and 100 for Infrastructure, giving Calgary 96.3 for its overall score.

The world’s #1 most livable city in the world for 2022 was Vienna (Austria) with an overall score of 99.1; followed by #2 Copenhagen (Denmark) with 98.0; Zurich (Switzerland) and Calgary (Canada) both tied for #3 with 96.3; Vancouver (Canada) was #5 with 96.1; Geneva (Switzerland) was #6 with 95.9; Frankfurt (Germany) was #7 with 95.7; Toronto (Canada) was #8 with 95.4; Amsterdam (Netherlands) was #9 with 95.3; with Osaka (Japan) and Melbourne (Australia) tied for 10th place with a score of 95.1 overall.

Something that Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto share in common, aside from being among the top 10 best places to live in the world, is all three Canadian cities received perfect scores of 100 for Healthcare and for Education.

One of the many benefits that Canadian citizens and permanent residents enjoy is high-quality universal public healthcare in the province or territory where they are living in Canada.

The widespread accessibility of modern healthcare has contributed to Canada having one of the longest average lifespans (82.5 years).

Another advantage of living in Canada as a permanent resident or citizen is having the opportunity to attend Canadian educational institutions, which are among the best in the OECD and the world.

The excellent education that Canadians receive, and the high percentage of adults with a post-secondary education, have led some to refer to Canada as the education superpower.

Vancouver is a great place to live in Canada.
Toronto is the top destination for new immigrants living in Canada.

It is worth noting that Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto are not unique in terms of offering their residents a high standard of living in Canada.

Canada is rated #1 in the world for quality of life and considered the best country to live overall.

So, whether you live in Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto or another community in Canada, you and your family will have the opportunity to experience a high quality of life.
