On the most part, Canadians are known to be nice, polite, and humble. But, when you’re country is consistently ranked one of the best in the world, it finally feels like something to boast about!

In a recent list published by US News & World Report, Canada ranked in the 3rd position of best countries, just falling behind Japan and Switzerland.

With a 9.7 overall score, Canadians definitely have something to brag about. Ranking very high in Citizenship and Entrepreneurship, Canada also took the #1 spot for “Quality of Life”.

A good quality of life is based on a country that is affordable, with a good job market, and that is economically stable, family friendly, offers income equality, is politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system and well-developed public health system.
