It’s no secret that Vancouver is a beautiful place to live, and it seems like the world is paying attention.

According to the Reputation Institute’s City RepTrak ranking, Vancouver is the tenth most admirable city in the world.

The global survey is based on over 22,000 consumer ratings collected in the G8 countries. Cities were ranked based on levels of trust, esteem, admiration, and respect.

Sydney, Australia, came in first place, but Canadian cities dominated the list as Toronto and Montreal were ranked fourth and seventh, respectively.

The study singled out Toronto particularly as a “comeback” city as it did not place in the top 10 list in the previous two years. This also marked a comeback year for Montreal, which placed tenth in 2014 but failed to make it to the list in 2015. Meanwhile, Vancouver ranked seventh in 2014 and fifth in 2015.

According to the survey, the top-ten cities made the cut because they are “well developed and have structure in place.”
