Did Montreal make the cut?
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released its "Global Liveability Index 2022" list, which ranked cities around the world based on a number of factors including culture, environment, healthcare and education.
Although results over the last two years regarding EIU's global liveability rankings have been driven by COVID-19, the most recent survey's index has normalized, as pandemic restrictions have been lifted throughout many countries.
Well, when it comes to Canada, Calgary was a clear winner.
The city ranked third with an overall index score of 96.3. Calgary also received a score of 100 for healthcare, education, and infrastructure.
Vancouver also made the list, securing itself in the fifth spot, with an overall index of 96.1.
Van City scored a total of 100 in categories such as healthcare, culture and environment and education.
Although the West Coast is seemingly getting quite a lot of love, Canada's East is also a desirable location to live.
Toronto landed in the eighth spot on the list, with an index score of 95.4. The 6ix managed to secure a score of 100 in both healthcare and education, and a score of 95 and 95.4 in stability and culture/environment respectively.
As for the most desirable global destination to live in, Vienna and Copenhagen took the top two spots, with Zurich tying Calgary for third.
