Toronto Ranked As One Of The Most Livable Cities In The World

It looks like Toronto has yet another thing to brag about. This time it's for being recognized as one of the most livable cities in the world. Again.

That's right, for the third year in a row, Toronto has been ranked as the fourth most liveable city in the world, following its western cousin Vancouver who came in third according to The Economist's Intelligence Unit's 2017 Global Liveability Report. However, as the report says, "just 0.2 and 0.3 percentage points separate Canada’s Vancouver and Toronto." 

The annual list, which comes out each August, assesses five key metrics: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure in 140 different countries.

For the seventh year in a row, Melbourne took the top spot, while Vienna and Vancouver followed pursuit taking second and third.  Another Canadian city made an appearance on the list, as Calgary came in a hot fifth.

While little has changed on the report over the past 12 months, this is still something that Torontonians should feel very proud about.

10 most livable cities in the world 2017 are as follows:

  1. Melbourne, Australia

  2. Vienna, Austria

  3. Vancouver

  4. Toronto

  5. Calgary

  6. Adelaide, Australia

  7. Perth, Australia

  8. Auckland, New Zealand

  9. Helsinki, Finland

  10. Hamburg, Germany
