Calgary has ranked as one of the top cities in North America for quality of living, despite its economic downturn.
The city was listed as 32nd on Mercer’s global quality of living survey based on a variety of factors including economic conditions, medical issues, the social and cultural environment, education, housing, and recreation.
“Quality of living continues to be high in Canada with a stable political environment and positive social benefits, offering a very desirable and safe place to live and work for residents and expatriate employees,” said Mercer’s leader of talent business Gordon Frost.
Calgary ranked behind other major Canadian cities including Montreal (23), Ottawa (17) and Toronto (15). Vancouver once again scored as the top Canadian city for the quality of living survey ranking 5th overall on the Mercer report.
