Canada Is Apparently One Of The World's Safest Countries To Visit In 2022 & Here's Why

Canada has been ranked one of the safest countries in the world to visit this year.

According to a report put together by travel insurance company Berkshire Hathaway, Canada ranks number three in a top-10 list of the world's safest places to travel to in 2022.

The countries on the list were ranked based on a few different factors. Visitor testimony, along with information from the U.S. State Department, the Global Peace Index and COVID-19 data from Our World in Data, produced a part of the score.

As well, the study considered the average safety rating in each nation's major cities according to the website GeoSure Global.

Canada was rated particularly highly by visitors, receiving the top spot for safety in Berkshire Hathaway's annual survey of travellers.

Canada also had the second-highest average city safety score from GeoSure, bested only by New Zealand.

The country's top attractions were praised too, as the report adds, "The Canadian Rockies might have their American counterparts beat in the beauty department, and there is an incredible amount of love for cities like Montreal and Vancouver."

The two nations that had Canada beat in the report's overall ranking were Iceland at number one and New Zealand, for the second year in a row, at number two.

It was Sweden that took the fourth spot, followed by Japan, Australia, Switzerland, Ireland, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Interestingly enough, Canada has actually dropped down a few spots since last year. It took first place in 2021, when New Zealand and Australia took second and third respectively.

It's all good though, as Canada topped the city-specific safety list put together by the same company with Montreal taking the number-one spot.

Safe travels!
