Three Canadian cities have made the top ten in the list of the world’s most livable cities in the Global Livability Index 2022. This year Calgary, Alberta tied with Zurich for third place. It outranked Zurich in education and infrastructure but fell short in culture and environment. Vienna claimed the top spot overall and Copenhagen took second place.
Vancouver placed in the fifth spot and Toronto, Canada’s largest and most populous city, made it into eighth place. This is an increase in ranking over 2021 where COVID-19 pandemic restrictions caused these cities to slip in the rankings. In 2021, Toronto was in the 20th position. Damascus, Tripoli, and Lagos came in last this year due to unsafe living conditions and a high threat of terrorism.
