Top 23 Cities to live in the World ... 4 are Canadian cities

Looking at 450 cities across the world, Mercer takes into account the following metrics to judge which cities made the list for the best quality of life:
  • Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement)
  • Economic environment (currency-exchange regulations, banking services)
  • Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom)
  • Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution)
  • Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools)
  • Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion)
  • Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure)
  • Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars)
  • Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services)
  • Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters)
Mercer made a list of 230 countries and Business Insider took a look at the top 23 in the world. And no, New York and London did not make the cut.
