Canada ranks #1 country for best quality of life (again)


In a recent study undertaken by the U.S. News and World Report, Canada ranked #1 as the country with the best quality of life.

The study surveyed over 20,000 people from four different regions to see what they thought about 80 countries based on 75 different metrics.

Quality of life is measured by a number of different matrices, including how affordable it is, what kind of a job market it has, whether or not it is economically stable, if it is family friendly, or if there is income equality in the workplace.

Other factors include whether the country has a stable political system, is safe and has a well developed public health and public education system.

With a population of 36.7 million people spread out in the world’s second largest country by land area (after Russia), Canada has much more room for growth.

In fact, Canada’s carefully managed immigration system is the centrepiece of the governments developmental and economic policies.

It’s international reputation of welcoming immigrants make Canada a very attractive choice for highly skilled individuals and families.

Canada welcomes more than 300,000 new immigrants to its shores every year, taking pride in encouraging all Canadians to honour their own cultures.

It is multiculturalism that makes Canada one of the most diverse countries in the world.

That’s not to say that it’s perfect. Canada faces its own, unique challenges, including those faced by Canada’s indigenous peoples and the Francophone community in Quebec.

Newcomer Canadians also have difficulties in settlement, although the Government of Canada pours a lot of resources into providing the necessary services to help immigrants become engaged members of their new communities.

Every story is different, but one thing is for certain: Canada is only getting started. Perhaps now would be a good time considering putting an application to immigrate to Canada?
