The Best Cities In The World Were Chosen & 6 Of Canada's Cities Were Deemed Worthy

A new ranking of the best cities in the world is out now with six Canadian spots making the cut and it's time to start bragging!

The World's Best Cities annual ranking for 2021 was released by Resonance Consultancy, a way of judging "where to live, work, invest and visit" around the world. It takes into account a place's weather, safety, universities, diversity, income, nightlife, Instagram worthiness and more to figure out whether a city is truly the best.

Toronto is the highest-ranking Canadian city, coming in at the 18th spot and placing highly when it comes to its people and universities. Next up is Vancouver in 46th place, Montreal in 48th and Calgary in 49th.

After that, the last two Canadian locations to place in the 100 city ranking are Ottawa in the 84th spot and Edmonton in 86th.

The top 10 cities in the world are London, Paris, New York City, Moscow, Dubai, Tokyo, Singapore, L.A., Barcelona and Madrid. Despite being judged as the best, eight of those spots actually ranked lower than Toronto in the "people" category, which looks diversity and education.

Toronto is one of the most desirable places to live in Canada, but how it compares to all the other top cities in the world is a much deeper question. Thankfully, we now have the answer.

According to the World's Best Cities report, an acclaimed ranking of urban hot spots by Resonance Consultancy, the 6ix is currently named the 18th greatest global destination. Toronto beat out all other Canadian cities by a country mile, including Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, which took the 46th, 48th and 49th spots respectively.
