Best Canadian cities among the top 100
Five Canadian cities are among the world’s best, according to a ranking released this week for 2023. The list of best cities, limited to those with populations of more than a million, included Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, and Ottawa among the top 100, according to the World’s Best Cities report by Resonance Consultancy, a marketing consultancy based in B.C.
The decision criteria for ranking cities depend on a wide range of factors. It should have positive correlations with attracting employment, investment, and tourism. Toronto ranked the best city in Canada and 24th in the world. Diversity, education, and a high number of head offices of major companies based in Toronto were the main reasons.
Why Toronto is one of the best cities in the world?
“The fact is, you can visit the world in a day here,” Wayne Smith, professor and interim director at the Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Toronto Metropolitan University, said.
“There’s not a lot of other places in the world that come even close to the diversity of the city. If you want Afghan food, you can find it. If you want some Sudanese food, you’ll find it, too.”
Montreal, Canada’s second-largest city came in 56th place in the ranking. Its income equality, culture, “iconic McGill University” and tech expertise attract foreign investments.
Calgary came in at 65, with points for its younger population, education accessibility, income equality, and quality of life.
Metro Vancouver was 69th on the list. Income equality, a “global ranking” university, safety, and the area’s unique topography were the reasons Vancouver made it to the top 100.
Canada’s capital, Ottawa, was the last Canadian city on the list, achieving high marks for education, low cost of living, and job availability.
The city of London won first place. That is because of its popularity with tourists and investors, the prevalence of luxury properties, high-profile residents, and economic development.
