Bragging rights: Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary among world’s top five most liveable cities, ranking says
It’s that time of the year again when Canadians living in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary get to brag about how their city is one of the world’s top five most liveable places.

Vancouver was ranked as the third best city to live overall for a second year in a row by the Economist Intelligence Unit, while Toronto and Calgary maintained their fourth and fifth spot positions respectively.

All three Canadian urban centres achieved a perfect 100 score in the healthcare and education categories, two of the more than 30 factors tracked in the annual ranking of more than 140 cities.

Toronto and Calgary also snagged a perfect score for stability, while Vancouver came in at 95, suffering a bit due to a slight upward trend in violent crime during 2010 and 2011.

The Canadian cities were outshined only by Melbourne, Australia and Vienna, Austria, which ranked as the first and second most liveable places respectively. (Photo: THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-Jae C. Hong)
