Toronto Skyline by Choudhry Saab
We can be proud of our city once again. In the annual survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit, Toronto confirmed the position of one of the best cities for living, ranking the fourth most liveable city in the world.
Canadian cities do traditionally very well in rankings – Vancouver was voted the best city in the world and Calgary ranked right behind Toronto on the fifth place.
The top ten was dominated by Canada and Australia (seven places together), only Vienna (ranked second), Helsinki (sixth) and Auckland (tenth) were able to stand by their side.
The survey ranked 130 cities on around 30 factors, including stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. The unfortunate tail of the chart is occupied by Harare (Zimbabwe), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Algiers (Algeria).
