The Best Places In The World To Live Were Just Ranked & Canada Made The Top 10

What a place to call home! A new report has found that Canada is among the best places to live in the world, although it didn't quite take the number one spot.

On January 12, 2022, CS Global Partners — a leading government advisory and marketing firm — released its World Citizenship Report (WCR).

The survey rates the best countries to live in based on several factors, including safety and security, quality of life, economic opportunity, global mobility and financial freedom.

A whopping 187 jurisdictions were included in the report and Canada ranked in seventh place overall, coming ahead of countries like the U.S. (20th), the U.K. (12th) and Australia (10th).

The country rated particularly highly for its safety and security levels, scoring 92 out of a possible 100 points overall. Comparatively, the United States was given 67 points.

Canada also fared well when it comes to quality of life, according to the research. It scored slightly behind the U.S. in terms of global mobility and financial freedom.

Taking the top spot was Switzerland, with a score of 88.1/100, compared with Canada's mark of 85.5/100.

It was Denmark that came second, while Finland, Norway and Sweden all tied for third place with a score of 86.9/100.

Also in the top 10 were countries like New Zealand, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany and Singapore, who took up the spots between fourth and seventh place.

Iceland tied with Canada at the eighth spot on the list, shortly followed by Austria and Australia taking ninth and tenth place, respectively.

It's been a good week for Canada overall, as the Canadian passport also moved up in a 2022 ranking of the most powerful passports worldwide. Not bad, eh?

If you've noticed the cost of just about everything has been hitting your wallet a little harder, you can thank Canada's inflation rate.

According to an annual report from Statistics Canada, released on January 19, the Consumer Price Index "rose 3.4% on an annual average basis in 2021, following an increase of 0.7% in 2020."

The snowstorm that took over southern Ontario was no joke this week. The first day back to school was cancelled, the TTC had serious delays, and major highways like the 401 were packed with so much snow that people were forced to shovel parts of the highway themselves.

With all the treacherous wintry weather and the god-awful road conditions, some Torontonians looked to rideshare services like Uber to (hopefully) get them from point A to point B and were apparently met with some wicked surge prices.
