21,000 business leaders, elites and regular citizens around the world consider Canada good for anyone wanting to change country of residence. To determine the top countries, Y&R’s BAV Group and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania developed a model that identified 65 attributes. The 2018 Best Countries report evaluated 80 countries on issues such as economic influence, power, citizenship, quality of life and others, Canada was ranked as the second-best country.
Canada came second behind Switzerland. The top ten countries on the Best Countries 2018 list are: Switzerland, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, Sweden, Australia, United States, France and Netherlands.
In the Quality of Life category which considered attributes such as safety, job opportunity, economic and political stability, good public education and health system, family friendly and more, Canada ranked number one. With a life expectancy rate of 82.14 years, and an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Better Life Index score of 9.7 out of 10 for safety and security, Canada is one of the safest places to live.
Boasting of the second highest standard of living of all G20 nations as measured by GDP per capita, and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world at 5.7 percent, Canada is also one of the strongest economies in the world. It does not only have a strong and stable economy, but a stable political climate as well. Reputed to be tolerant and broadminded, Canada has long been a pioneer of civil rights, evident in its open borders immigration policy.
During the survey this year, respondents were also asked to evaluate major world leaders for the first time. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were deemed the most respected leaders globally. True???
Canada also boasts of having one of the best educational systems, placing high premium on quality education, and spends more per capita on education than other countries in the world. No wonder some of Canada’s biggest universities began the new school year last September, with a record number of international students on campus.
Health care system in Canada is publicly funded with general revenue raised through federal, provincial and territorial taxation. The basic values of fairness and equity demonstrated by the willingness of Canadians to share resources and responsibility are displayed by this health care system. Every Canadian and Permanent Resident has or is entitled to a health card which grants access to both primary and secondary health care services.
As an immigrant in the world’s second-best country, you too can enjoy first-class standard of living covering safety, job opportunity, economic and political stability, good public education and health system, and much more.
