Just when you thought Canada couldn't get any more awesome, we go ahead and secure a rather important world ranking.

This time however, I'm talking about social progress and quality of life.

Countries were judged based on how well they meet society's basic needs, the foundations of well being and how much opportunity the country has to offer.

Basic needs include: Nutrition and basic medical care, water and sanitation, shelter and personal safety.

Opportunity includes: Personal freedom and choice, access to advanced education, tolerance and inclusion and personal rights.
