The world’s 15 best places to live – Toronto is one of them!

13 Dec

I just wanted to share this article giving a brief analysis taken from the Mercer’s 2011 quality-of-life survey with everyone. The annual Mercer’s report looks at living conditions in 221 cities worldwide and ranks them against New York as a base city in 10 categories such as socio-cultural environment, economy, politics, education and the health sector. It feels good to know that I live in one of the 15 best world’s places to live – Toronto. It’s a pity though that none of the other cities I’ve lived in before were mentioned in this list.

15. Toronto, Canada
14. Ottawa, Canada
13. Wellington, New Zealand
12. Amsterdam, Netherlands
11. Sydney, Australia
9(tie). Copenhagen, Denmark
9(tie. Bern, Switzerland
8. Geneva, Switzerland
7. Frankfurt, Germany
5(tie). Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
5(tie). Düsseldorf, Germany
4. Munich, Germany
3. Auckland, New Zealand
2. Zurich, Switzerland
1. Vienna, Austria

Seems like old Europe is taking the lead in the survey results.

    I saw this list before. I would like to live in any of those places, for sure. 🙂

      Take a risk and do that, at least for a bit! p.s. that’s what I am doing right now. I’ve taken a risk to have an experience of living in Toronto…so far, I am not regretting it 🙂
