Relocating to a new country is a big decision, and one that should be carefully considered. With so many factors to weigh, it can be difficult to know where to start. This is where livability rankings can be a valuable tool. Livability rankings are designed to help people find the best city for them based on their individual needs and preferences. They take into account a wide range of factors, such as the cost of living, job opportunities, safety, quality of education, and access to amenities.
The Globe and Mail released a ranking of the 20 most livable cities in Canada for newcomers. This particular ranking focuses on the livability of a city for newcomers - including immigrants, considering it to be the central factor in determining a good fit for an individual. It includes data from 439 cities across Canada, each with a population exceeding 10,000.
Canada also has 3 of the most livable cities in the world! Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto have been voted 3 of the top 10 most livable cities in the world for the past few years by the Global Liveability Index, ranking 173 cities around the world on over 30 qualities including stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.
