European cities dominated the quality of life rankings, making up eight of the top 10 best cities to live in in the world.
Vancouver was the only North American city to make the list, coming in fifth place, in front of Dusseldorf and behind Munich, Germany.
Vienna, Austria, topped the list for the ninth year in a row.

Vancouver was the only Canadian city to make the top-10 list, with Toronto coming in 16th, Ottawa in 19th, Montreal in 21st, and Calgary taking 33rd.
