It's no surprise people around the world want to move to Canada. The Economist Intelligence Unit (Economist Magazine's EIU) unveiled its 2019 Global Liveability Index in September, ranking 140 cities around the globe on over 30 qualities including stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Once again, 3 Canadian cities are listed in the top 10 most livable cities in the world.
Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver North America's Most Livable Cities
Calgary was named the most livable city in North America - Calgary ranked in 5th place, the highest of any Canadian cities, with Vancouver ranked 6th and Toronto tied at 7th with Tokyo. Calgary scored a perfect 100 in every category except culture and environment, with a 97.5 out of 100 in each. Calgary's low crime rate and good education push Calgary into the top tier of the world's most livable cities.
The world's top 10 most livable cities all share similarities that contribute to their livability score, according to the EIU report. They tend to be mid-sized cities in wealthier countries, and have a relatively low population density that allows them to foster recreational activities without leading to high crime rates or an overburdened infrastructure.
Here is the full list of EIU's world's top 10 most livable cities:
1. Vienna, Austria
2. Melbourne, Australia
3. Sydney, Australia
4. Osaka, Japan
5. Calgary, Canada
6. Vancouver, Canada
7. Toronto, Canada
7. Tokyo, Japan

Calgary Mayor Nenshi said,
