U.S. News in partnership with Wharton has just ranked Canada as the country with the highest quality of life and the second best country overall in the Best Countries digital segment.

Best Countries is a ranking, news, and analysis project developed to give insight into how countries are perceived on a global scale. The rankings evaluated 80 countries across 24 different statistical rankings taken from over 21,000 global citizens. The project measured 75 dimensions that drive trade, travel, and investments that directly affect each country’s national economies.

The project highlights the fact that Canadians pride themselves on encouraging all of their citizens to honor their own cultures.  Canada has been focusing on multiculturalism since 1971 by adopting a national policy that celebrates our country’s diversity.

Furthermore, the article highlights Canada is a high-tech industrial society with a high standard of living with strong trade agreements made with the U.S. in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

With a very strong education system and a continued focus of cultural improvement and development, Canada sits atop 78 other countries as one of the best all-round.
