A report by Social Progress Imperative ranked global countries on the bases of human rights, needs and wellbeing. Finland took the #1 spot with 90.09 points out of 100, while Canada scored 89.49 points.

Canada scored particularly high in areas such as personal rights, which deals with issues like tolerance for LGBTQ people. It also ranked 14th for low race-driven discrimination and violence, and tied with other countries like Denmark and Australia for having low crime levels.

Way to go, Canada!
