According to the latest edition of The Good Country Index, Canada places 14th on the list of countries that make the world a better place.
The Good Country Index measures what each country in the world contributes to the common good of humanity. The Index uses a wide range of data from the UN and other international organizations to figure out which countries have the most positive global impact on the world.
Countries are ranked by their global contributions to the following areas:
- Science and technology

The top ten spots were all taken by European nations. The Netherlands placed first, followed by Switzerland and Denmark.
