We all know that Canada offers a great quality of life. According to a recent study by the Centre for the Study of Living Standards, this varies depending on where you live in the country. The study used measurement tools usually used in international classifications to show where the Canadian provinces would be placed in a global ranking. The study followed 3 dimensions: life expectancy, education, and income.
Global Ranks according to the study:
#4 – Alberta
The study suggests Alberta offers the best quality of life in Canada. Globally, it is offering a quality of life comparable to Denmark or Switzerland.
#8 – Ontario According to the study, Ontario offers the next best quality of life in Canada.
#11 – British Columbia
Life expectancy is the longest in BC compared to all Canadian provinces.
#12 – Saskatchewan
#12 – Quebec
Quebec would rank first for expected years of schooling among Canadian provinces.
#15 – Northwest Territories
The highest gross national income per capita is in the Northwest Territories.
#16 – Newfoundland and Labrador
#22 – Nova Scotia
#22 – Yukon
Yukon has the highest level of average educational attainment in all Canadian provinces.
#23 – Prince Edward Island
#23 – Manitoba – 1st Jollibee in Canada
#25 – New Brunswick
#36 – Nunavut
This study is a good way to understand the quality of life in all Canadian Provinces. However, this is not an official ranking.
As per official rankings, it would be great to know that in terms of overall global ranking for countries, Canada ranks #2 after Germany. When it comes to quality of life, Canada ranks #1 globally.
