Women Thrive Living in Canada
A worldwide survey of 8,048 women has found that Canada is considered to be the #4 best country to live for women, after #1 Sweden, #2 Denmark and #3 Norway, and ahead of #5 Netherlands, #6 Finland, #7 Switzerland, #8 New Zealand, #9 Germany and #10 Australia, among many other countries.
The survey conducted in 2020 had rated Canada the #5 best country for women, so the country moved a bit closer to the top position over the past year.
In the 2021 survey performed by the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, BAV Group, and US News & World Report, countries around the globe were rated by women based on five factors: gender equality, safety, progress, income equality, and care about human rights.
Gender equality for women living in Canada is based on the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which were the basis for the Labour Code of Canada, Employment Equity Act, Canadian Gender Budgeting Act, and the Pay Equity Act.
In addition to federal legislation, the Employment Standards Act (2000) and Human Rights Code in Ontario, for example, ensure that people who perform equal work receive equal pay.
Canada is also a progressive and safe country for women (and people in general) to live in.
For example, the Canadian government is led by progressive Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party, and Freedom House gave Canada a very high score of 98% for civil liberties and political rights in its 2021 report.
Furthermore, the 2021 Global Peace Index ranked Canada as the #10 most peaceful country, after #1 Iceland, #2 New Zealand, #3 Denmark, #4 Portugal, #5 Slovenia, #6 Austria, #7 Switzerland, #8 Ireland, and #9 Czech Republic.
It should be noted that Canada has been ranked the #1 best country to live overall, the #1 best country for quality of life, the #2 best country for racial equality, and the #5 best country for raising children, according to other surveys conducted in 2021 by the Wharton School, BAV Group and US News & World Report.
The bottom line is that Canada is a great place to live, not only for women, but for men, children, immigrants, foreign students, etc.
