Vancouver among the world’s most livable cities again

January 14, 2016 Posted by Adriana Haukaas

Once again, the Economist Intelligence Unit has rated Vancouver, British Columbia, as one of most livable cities in its yearly assessment – ranked Number 3 in the world. The rating confirms that Vancouver continues to be one of the world’s most attractive places to live and work.

Rated 97.3 out of 100, Vancouver wins a higher rating than nearby centres such as Seattle, Washington, and San Francisco, California, as well as other well-known cities, including Sydney, Australia, Zurich, Switzerland, or London, England.

The high rating complements the ranking by fDI Intelligence (a division of The Financial Times) that placed Vancouver as the Number 1 large city among rankings of the best jurisdictions for foreign direct investment in North and South America.

The ranking by the EIU considers 30 factors related to aspects such as infrastructure, environment, safety, educational resources, and health care in 140 cities worldwide. Vancouver achieved high scores in all categories, reflecting its stable political and economic structure, low crime levels, diverse recreational opportunities, and uncrowded population density.
