Toronto Was Just Ranked One Of The Most Tech-Savvy Cities In The World & Even Beat Tokyo

Hats off Toronto, you've got some new global recognition to add to your list of bragging rights.

A recent ranking put out by, a price comparison service, named Toronto among the most tech-savvy cities across the globe.

By factoring in tech salaries, the estimated cost of living, the number of successful tech startups, internet speed, and local universities' engineering and technology scores, the ranking named the top 30 most tech-savvy cities worldwide, and the 6ix placed pretty high.

In fact, Toronto came out in the middle of the pack at 15th overall, beating out both Copenhagen and Tokyo, which placed 16th and 18th respectively.

The U.S. dominated the top five spots with Denver, surprisingly, clinching the first spot due to its "strong, reliable and speedy internet connection" and the amount of disposable income tech workers have.

Washington, D.C., snagged the silver medal thanks to the number of tech startups coming out of the city, and New York came out in third for its "unicorn companies,", which are privately held startups that are valued at over $1 billion.

Toronto, however, wasn't the only Canadian city to make it to the list.

Vancouver took seventh place, which is largely thanks to the fact that it had the highest average score on the World University Rankings for tech degrees (we see you UBC!).
