Good news for us Canadians! We were just ranked as the 2nd best country in the world to live in.
According to an annual survey by U.S. News & World Report, along with Y&R’s BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, only Switzerland ranked higher.
The rankings prioritize countries that have some measure of peace, quiet and prosperity.
Last year’s top spot went to Germany, who fell to 4th this year after terrorist attacks and political tension.
The United States ranked 7th with 75% of surveyors saying they lost some respect for the country after electing Donald Trump.
Some other interesting rankings include Sweden being ranked as the Best Country For Women AND the Best Country To Raise Children In, with Canada finishing 5th in both of those rankings.
Overall, not a bad showing for Canada.
