Canadian Cities Win Again!

Are you planning on moving to Canada? You probably are, if you’re reading this.  Well, we always tell you that your decision to move to Canada is smart because we love Canada. But it’s always good to have some recent data to back those claims up.
It’s late August, which is that time of year when some major publications are deferring to the Economist’s report about the most liveable cities in the world.
With 3 Canadian cities holding their own in the top 10 of this massive collection of data, we proudly decided to join the celebrations.

How do they decide which cities are the best cities to live in?

The Economist surveyed 140 cities and used the results to assign each city a rating of relative comfort based on over 30 elements divided into 5 broad criteria

 

This category is worth 25% of the total score.  Elements included in this criteria:

  • prevalence of petty crime
  • prevalence of violent crime
  • prevalence of terror
  • prevalence of military conflict
  • threat of civil unrest or conflicet

 

This category is worth 20% of the total score.  Elements included in this criteria:

      • availability of private healthcare
      • quality of private healthcare
      • availability of public healthcare
      • quality of public healthcare
      • availability of over-the-counter drugs

     

This category is worth 25% of the total score.  Elements included in this criteria:

      • humidity rating
      • temperature rating
      • discomfort of climate to travelers
      • level of corruption
      • social or religious restrictions
      • level of censorship
      • sporting availability
      • cultural availability
      • availability of food and drink
      • availability of consumer goods and services.

     

This category is worth 10% of the total score.  Elements included in this criteria:

  • availability of private education
  • quality of private education
  • public education indicators.

 

This category is worth 20% of the total score.  Elements included in this criteria:

  • quality of road networks
  • quality of public transport
  • quality of international links
  • availability of good quality housing
  • quality of energy provision
  • quality of water provision
  • quality of telecommunications

The top cities to live in for 2018

So let’s get to the point: the top 10 most liveable cities in the world!
Honestly? We don’t care.  We’re here to talk about Canada.
So here it is: the 3 Canadian cities sitting pretty in the top 10 most liveable cities list.

If you’ve been following this survey in past years, you would not be surprised by the results, as 3 Canadian cities have relentlessly hogged slots in the top 10 for quite some time, while other top 10 cities have come and gone from year to year.

First, we congratulate Calgary who climbed from 5th place to 4th place this year.
In 6th place sits the magnificent city of Vancouver which continues to hog a slot in the top 10 for years.
A very close second to Vancouver and 7th on the list in our beloved city of Toronto, Ontario – our home of choice and top 10 slot holder for many years.

 

Congratulations, ladies.

 

What about Canadians?

“What is the city but the people?” asks Sicinius in Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, and according to what Canadians are saying, the news is great.

The IRCC recently commissioned a massive survey throughout Canada checking the pulse of the population regarding immigration.
The survey was conducted via focus groups, on the phone and online, and classified the participants in 3 groups: newcomers, established immigrants living in Canada and the general public.

This expensive and extensive effort by the IRCC came up with very positive results.  It is widely agreed upon by the majority of all 3 groups that immigration is a welcome part of Canadian life.
The general consensus is that the stream of incoming immigrants have a positive effect on Canadian economy and culture.

Canadians – both established and new – also mostly agree that what they refer to as “jumping the lines” is of great concern and has an adverse affect on life in Canada.   The survey found that the majority of all 3 groups and in particular the new-comers’ group felt that people who are entering the country through unofficial border crossings were a serious problem.  New-comers found it highly unfair that their own family members have to wait so long for legal process to permit them to live together, while what they refer to as “irregular” immigrants take advantage of what they call “jumping the fence”.

Let me simplify it for you: Canadians are as we have always been – happy to accept immigrants with open arms. However, Canadians expect immigrants to follow due process, and are very unhappy with “unofficial” immigration.  We’re sure you can agree with that.

 

Be welcome in Canada – click the face!

 

At this point I would like to add that while we named 3 Canadian cities that made it into the top 10 (as they do every year), it doesn’t mean that other Canadian cities aren’t great to live in.  ItsCanadaTime will continue to introduce you to more great places to move to in Canada in the future to give you as many options and possibilities for the bright future you dream about.
