Canada has been landing near the top in all sorts of rankings including the 2nd most beautiful, and the 2nd best overall country to live in.  It all combines to land our home and native land at the number one spot for quality of life.  What’s more, is Canada has been dominating this ranking for three years now.

A study conducted by U.S. News, Y&R’s BAV and Wharton University broke down 80 countries from around the globe and scored them on 75 different metrics.  The metrics gave the study a chance to rank the countries on everything from educational systems to the best countries for women.

The quality of life ranking took the overall score of nine country attributes including affordability, job market, economic stability, family friendliness, income equality, political stability, safety, education, and public health systems.

Canada managed to score perfect, or near-perfect in six of the nine attributes which was good enough for a 10 out of 10 ranking in life quality.
