Why is Canada so great? We've got the answers!

It’s common knowledge that Canada is a great country, but what makes it so special? Why is it that so many people are so charmed with Canada that more than 300,000 people immigrate there every year? Today we take a look at a few reasons why Canada is rated so highly.

We list only some of the millions things Canada does better than the rest.

  1. 1.       Canada ranked 2nd best country in the world

Canadians officially have the right to brag — again. Canada has been ranked as the second best country globally, according to the 2020 Best Countries report by US News & World Report.

  1. 2.       It’s a really great place to work

Typically employers treat employees very well.  Not only because they are closely governed by law but also because they really want to hang on to people.  Canada is still in the grips of a talent shortage – an issue which is being addressed with aggressive immigration drives to attract talent and experience to the country. 

Employers offer some of the most advanced and forward thinking job perks you can imagine.


Montreal-based GSOFT has free lunches delivered three times a week while Digital Extremes in London, ON employs two full-time chefs to prepare free meals for their employees. Uken Studios in Toronto has onsite massage therapists, physiotherapists and chiropractors.  They even have specially designed nap rooms! Childcare facilities are becoming more commonplace but some companies also cater to their employees’ furry family!

  1. 3.       It’s a great place to grow old in

If you’re part of the booming Boomer generation, you’ll be happy to know Canada is the 5th best country to grow old in.   The country’s unique old age pension programs and health care system makes sure you will be well cared for in your Golden Years

  1. 4.       The Economy is doing well

The Canadian economy is the 14th largest in the world, making the Canadian society one of the wealthiest of all world nations with a consistently high standard of living.

  1. 5.       Unemployment is almost unheard of

Canada has an exceptional low unemployment rate which stays well below the 5% mark.

  1. 6.       Peace out!

Canada is one of the most peaceful countries in the world.  It is politically stable and citizens respect their government.  Canada is inclusive, liberal and non-discriminatory.  It is considered one of the safest countries in the world.

  1. 7.       Oh so polite

No list of Canada’s endearing qualities is complete without gushing about how polite and civilized Canadians are.  That alone improves quality of life in Canada.  Their politeness is one of the reasons Canada is so stable and respected by other nations.

  1. 8.       Canada’s education system is world-class

Canada spends more on education per capita than any other industrialized nation in the world and has been named the most educated country in the world. Canada’s K-12 public education system is regarded as one of the best in the world.

  1. 9.       Canadians enjoy access to universal healthcare

Canada’s Universal Healthcare System was adopted in the 1960s. Under the program, every province or territory in Canada has a healthcare plan which provides all residents with reasonable access to medical services, without paying out of pocket for healthcare services such as hospital visits or access to doctors.

  1. 10.   Breath!

Canada is exceptionally clean and works very hard at successfully addressing all forms of pollution.   It seems to be working too. In a recent national air quality study by the World Health Organization, Canada placed third for the cleanest air on the planet.
