If you’re looking for a job, then Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver are some of the best places in the world to find one.
This is according to a recently published study by German company Movinga, which analyzed and scored 100 cities in OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) nations according to three criteria: economic strength for startups and businesses, standard of living (which included disposable income and healthcare benefits), and the presence of women, migrants, and young people in the workforce.
Calgary was the highest ranking Canadian city on the list in third place, with a score of 6.79 out of 10. Its favourable ranking was largely due to the opportunities it offers women (a strength shared by all Canadian cities on the list).
In a similar study by the Economist Intelligence Unit that ranked cities according to livability (e.g. quality of healthcare, education, infrastructure, etc.), Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto made the top ten out of 140 cities analyzed.
