A new ranking came out for the world’s most powerful passports. So where did Canada land on the list?

Well, it’s Canada right? The country whose main stereotype is that we’re nice. A country so well liked around the world, that travelers sew our flag on their backpacks so people are more respective of them. If there’s one passport that gets you access pretty much anywhere in the world, it’s a Canadian one right?


It’s actually Germany. For more than a decade, the British immigration and citizenship firm Henley & Partners have been ranking countries according to the travel freedom their citizens have. Certain countries have travel restrictions so the list ranks each country by the number of other countries their citizens are allowed to travel to visa-free.

1. Germany

Access to 176 countries.
