    Default Toronto Ranked Best City In The World To Live

    Toronto is the world’s best city to live in, according to a study of major metropolises by The Economist

    And Montreal is the second-best, with Stockholm, Amsterdam and San Francisco rounding out the top five.

    The two Canadian cities topped the overall scoring in the 2015 Safe Cities Index published this week by the EIU, a unit of The Economist Magazine. It is based on a ranking of 50 major cities by a new study of safety along with past rankings based on liveability and cost of living. Cities were further sorted according to past country rankings based on business environment, degree of democracy and food security.

    “Deciding where to live is a personal choice for many city residents. For some, safety will be paramount. Others will prioritise culture and creativity. Two neighbours may hold opposite views on democracy and the cost of living,” acknowledges the Economist’s Intelligence Unit in the report. “The average rankings for the 25 best-performing cities are set out below – Toronto in Canada is a consistent performer across the five other indexes, putting it top overall.”

    While the safety index looks at the five factors of digital security, health security, infrastructure and personal safety, the measure of where to live is based on EIU's other studies as well, including democracy, liveability rankings, worldwide cost of living, business environment rankings and global food security.

    Best overall place to live:

    10. Chicago

    9. Sydney

    8. Washington, DC

    7. Zurich

    6. Melbourne

    5. San Francisco

    4. Amsterdam

    3. Stockholm

    2. Montreal

    1. Toronto

We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
