It's Official, Canada Ranked #1 Most Admired Country In The World

Our reputation has been recognized world-wide.
It's Official, Canada Ranked #1 Most Admired Country In The World

According to a 2015 survey from the Reputation Institute involving the 55 wealthiest nations in the world, Canada has been named the most admired country.The reputation of Canada was judged based on political, economic and environmental factors.

We were praised mainly for the effectiveness of our government, the lack of corruption, the friendliness of the people and the way we treat the less fortunate members of our society.

We did however lose points in the business category because we don't have many big name bands here. We also fell behind because of our lack of contribution to the global culture. But regardless of that, we're #1!

Canada has won the top spot 4 times in the last 5 years. Which speak to our overall badassness (I don't care if it isn't a word, I'm making it a word) Switzerland, Sweden and Australia were the runners up on the list and our downstairs neighbor the good ol' U.S. of A only managed to snag the 22nd spot on the list.
