Overall, Canada also ranked as the fifth best country in the world for women, third in business, and second in terms of citizenship rankings.
The study, conducted by US News & World Report in partnership with Y&R’s BAV and Wharton, broke down 80 countries’ overall rankings based “on 75 different metrics.”
