Canada is the second best country in the world to live in! This is according to the findings of the 2018 Best Countries report, a rankings and analysis project by U.S. News & World Report, Y&R's BAV Group and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Canada ranked highest in the “quality of life” category while also performing well in the citizenship, open for business, and entrepreneurship sub sections.
80 different countries were evaluated as part of the report, with over 21,000 respondents from around the world asked to assign country attributes to specific nations. Examples of country attributes include, words and phrases like “culturally accessible” or “educated population” that respondents would then assign to a country.
