Massive Millennial Survey Ranks Canada as Best Country in the World

Canada’s ego just keeps getting bigger.

Earlier this spring, a Canadian city was named one of the least snobby in the world, and last week The University of Toronto ranked 23rd in the world on the annual Times Higher Education World Reputation Ranking

And now Canadians can proudly strut down city streets knowing that their home and native land has been recognized for its expansive wilderness, Canadian identity, and reputation of welcoming immigrants.

According to a recent report, millennials ranked the Great White North as the best country in the world as part of a report that reveals how 18-to 35-year-olds perceive nations on a global scale.

The report, which was prepared jointly by U.S. News & World Report, BAV Consulting, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, expressed that millennials have the highest consideration for Canada, followed by Germany and the U.K., respectively.

“Millennials will play a significant role in shaping national economies worldwide for decades to come,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News.

“Capturing their perceptions is valuable in helping to determine the current and future possibilities of economic, political and cultural success in nations.”

The rankings evaluated 60 countries across 24 rankings that were drawn from a survey of 16,200 global respondents. The millennials that participated in the survey were then asked to rate each nation based on a wide range of criteria, from dating culture to career development.

Australia was recognized as being the best country to live, followed by Canada at number two, and Italy  at three.

China is the top country to start a career and Thailand was rated the nation with the most economic potential. Finally, millennials ranked Brazil as the overall best country for dating.
