Toronto fourth-most livable city in the world, Economist saysAugust 18, 2016
The City of Toronto is fourth on the Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual list of most “liveable” cities once again in 2016, a spot it has held each year since 2009.
The list analyzes five different categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure, ranking 140 cities across the world each year.
Toronto is behind top cities Melbourne, Vienna, and Vancouver.
Toronto received perfect scores on stability, healthcare and education, but lags behind the leaders in infrastructure and culture and environment.
In fact, Toronto had the poorest infrastructure score of any city in the top 10 list.
Rounding out the list below Toronto is Calgary in fifth, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, Helsinki, and Hamburg.
Six of the top ten cities are located in Canada and Australia. The report’s authors say that is partly attributed to both countries’ low population density.
