Toronto ranked 4th most liveable city in the world


Each year The Economist surveys 140 cities around the world, generating a list of the least and most liveable. Last year Toronto came in fourth, and it looks like we're not budging.

The 2015 rankings were just released and Toronto is sandwiched between Vancouver (3rd) and Calgary (5th), Canada takes up most of the top five, bested only by Vienna, Austria (2nd) and Melbourne, Australia (1st).

How does it work? The score is based on each city's performance in five categories: stability, healthcare, culture & environment, education, and infrastructure.

Before you get too sour about not coming in at number one, remember that Toronto was ranked the best city to live in the world a few mere months ago by The Safe Cities Index (calculated by The Economist Intelligence Unit) and just last week we topped a similar list published by Metropolis Magazine. So hey, we may not be the best overall, but we sure have a lot going for us.
