IQAir’s data found that Canada has met the World Health Organization’s targets for air quality for the past three years in a row, beating out countries like the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

It scored 7.30 on the chart, whereas the most-polluted regions, such as Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, scored between 51.90 and 77.10 in 2020.

There are only a number of places in the world that are rated better than Canada, including Iceland, New Zealand, Estonia, Norway and Sweden, among a few others.
