The Economic Intelligence Unit recently released its report called Global Livability Ranking. This report assesses the best and worst cities to live across the globe.

4. Toronto, Canada
5. Adelaide, Australia
6. Calgary, Canada
7. Perth, Australia
8. Auckland, New Zealand
9. Helsinki, Finland

Six of the top ten cities are in Canada and Australia.
The most improved cities are Tehran in Iran, Dubai in United Arab Emirates, and Harare in Zimbabwe.

Ranked at the bottom, the worst cities to live are Damascus, Syria, followed by Tripoli, Libya, Lagos in Nigeria, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
One important thing to point out is that Canada is the only country in North America that is on the top ten of the report. However, this is not the only report that puts Canada in the top. There are several other reports, for example, Mercer Quality of Living, UN Human Development Index, World Economic Forum are just only a few to mention that consistently put Canada at the top, beating any other country in North America and in line with a few other top-ranking countries the world.
