Vancouver recently took first prize as the most “liveable city in the world” according to a new ranking done by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The study ranked each city with a score from 0-100 based on evaluation in five categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. Vancouver was given a score of 98, closely followed by Vienna who came second place with a score of 97.9. The top ranked American city in “livability report” was Pittsburg who came in at 29th place.
As a newcomer to this fine city, I was rather proud that the top prize not only went to a Canadian city but that it also went to one of the most beautiful and lively cities I’ve ever experience. I’m extremely proud to call this city home and I’m looking forward to getting to know the alleys and backstreets that make this city so dynamic. Care to join?
