Our beautiful country is truly something special.

For the fourth year in a row, Canada has been ranked the #1 country in the world for Quality of Life.

US News & World Report partnered with Y&R BAV Consulting and the Wharton School for the study that “surveyed more than 20,000 global citizens from four regions to assess perceptions of 80 countries on 75 different metrics” reads their website.


The Quality of Life subranking is based on an equally weighted average of scores from nine country attributes that relate to quality of life in a country: “affordable, a good job market, economically stable, family friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system and well-developed public health system”.

Below is the full list of the 20 best countries.
