Canada ranked as the 2nd best country in the world

Posted by Rai Hansrani on January 21, 2016

Canadians have never had it so good.

Canada ranks as the second best country globally, according to the inaugural list of the world’s best countries released Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The number two ranking is out of a list of 60 countries, and Canada only trails behind Germany at number one. Canada also came in at number one for quality of life and number two for citizenship. The quality of life sub-ranking is based on several factors: affordability, job market, economic stability, family-friendliness, income equality, political stability, safety, and quality of public services such as the healthcare and school systems.

Scandinavian countries largely topped the quality of life ranking, with Sweden coming in at number two, Denmark at number three, and The Netherlands at number five. Australia is number four. The citizenship sub-ranking measures a number of factors such as gender equality, human rights, religious freedom, and trustworthiness. Canada ranked number two overall in this category, just being edged out by Sweden at number one. Denmark was third, The Netherlands was fourth, and Australia was fifth.

The list is a joint venture between the WEF, U.S. News, and the University of Pennsylvania.

So proud that Canada ranks #1 for quality of life and #2 for citizenship #Best countries #Davos 2016
