This will sound like an old news, still the excitement is the same, however.
Canada has broken another record. It is something to be proud of, but it has not happened for the first time.
For the second time in a row Canada has been named as the second best country in the world to live in.
the survey was conducted by the US News & World Report and the Great White North was placed at the second position in the list of “Best Countries” this year.
The survey was conducted in collaboration with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the Young & Rubicam BAV Consulting.
The perfect 10 score was given to Switzerland which took the number 1 spot and with a score of 9.7, Canada was at the second position.
A total of 80 countries were evaluated on a variety of parameters including quality of life, citizenship and economic influence. More than 21,000 people took part in the second annual survey which was carried out after the US presidential election.
According to Brian Kelly, chief content officer and editor of US news stated that they wanted to know about the perceived standing of countries in the world after the tumultuous political changes.
Similar kind of surveys have been conducted for universities, hospitals and other institutions. The survey to find out the Best Countries made use of fact based metrics along with storytelling to help governments, business leaders and citizens have a better understanding of their countries and make important global issues more meaningful.
It is the first time that Switzerland has taken the number one spot. Last year this spot was taken by Germany, which has gone down to number four position in this year’s list.
Canada has scored perfect 10 points in the category of “quality of life”, which was judged on different parameters including economy, politics and health care.
It has been stated in the report that Canada has a high standard of living and is being considered as a high tech industrial society.
Trade agreements that were signed between US and Canada in the 1980s and 1990s has significantly improved the relation between the two countries.
