High Level of Life Satisfaction

The Canadian Social Survey recently gathered data from individuals 15 years of age or above and found that most people living in Canada are happy.

A scale or zero to ten measured the level of life satisfaction (i.e., happiness), with ten indicating “very satisfied” and zero meaning “very dissatisfied” with life.

In 2022, 51.7% of the people living in Canada indicated a high level of life satisfaction, including 52.6% of men and 50.8% of women.

It is worth noting that the 2022 United Nations World Happiness Report listed Canada among the top 20 happiest countries in the world.

The Canadian Social Survey also revealed that several provinces have a larger percentage of residents who are highly satisfied with life compared with other provinces in Canada.

A UN global survey found Canada is one of the happiest countries in the world.

For example, 61.7% of the people living in Newfoundland and Labrador reported a high level of life satisfaction (the highest percentage of any Canadian province).

On Prince Edward Island, 59.7% of the population is highly satisfied with life, compared with 58.7% in Quebec, 56.8% in New Brunswick, 56.1% in Manitoba, 52.2% in Alberta, and 51.2% living in Saskatchewan.

Although not a majority, a large minority (49.9 percent) of the people living in Nova Scotia indicated that they are highly satisfied with life; 48.4 percent in Ontario; and 46.5% in British Columbia.

Canada is ranked #1 in the world for quality of life, so it is understandable why most Canadians are highly satisfied with life.

Canadians also get public healthcare, they can receive a quality education, jobs in Canada pay well, and they live in a beautiful country!


If you and your family are in pursuit of happiness, keep in mind that happiness comes from within; however, living in Canada where there are so many benefits and opportunities available certainly helps to make life more pleasant.
