Canadian Cities Are Among The Most Liveable on Earth
If you have been thinking cities like New York, Los Angeles, Florida, London, Tokyo, and Paris are some of the best places to live, think again. A recent report published by The Economist’s Intelligence Unit puts three Canadian cities in the top ten list of the most liveable cities on the world.
Here are the top ten most liveable cities among 140 cities on earth, based on 30 factors across categories such as stability, infrastructure, education, health care, and environment.
1. Melbourne, Australia
2. Vienna, Austria
3. Vancouver, Canada
4. Toronto, Canada
5. Adelaide, Australia
5. Calgary, Canada
7. Sydney, Australia
8. Helsinki, Finland
9. Perth, Australia
10. Auckland, New Zealand
On the top ten, three cities are in Canada and three cities are in Australia. Most liveable cities are often mid-sized cities in rich countries with lower population, as the report points out.
The liveability of the Canadian cities has improved compared to other cities. On the other hand, the conditions on the bottom cities on the list deteriorated, especially concerning human rights violation and conflict.
The least 10 liveable cities on earth are Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire), Tripoli (Libya), Douala (Cameroon), Harare (Zimbabwe), Algiers (Algeria), Karachi (Pakistan), Lagos (Nigeria), Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea), Dhaka (Bangladesh), and Damascus (Syria). To view the full report, visit The Economist.
