Canada ranks first among countries where people would most like to live

According to U.S. News & World Report 2022, Canada is the number 1 place where people would live. “Canada is a high-tech industrial society with a high standard of living,” said U.S. News.

The ranking report, which covers 85 nations, is based on how global perceptions define countries in terms of a number of attributes that have the potential to drive trade, travel and investment and directly affect national economies.

Further, the nations were presented in a 2022 survey of more than 17,000 people from across the globe. From April 30 to July 13, participants assessed whether they associated an attribute with a nation. Consequently, the more a country was perceived to exemplify a certain characteristic, the higher that country’s attribute score. According to the result of the report, Canada is #1 in ‘Is a place people would live‘ and #3 in ‘Best Countries Overall‘.
