The Economist Intelligence Unit is a division of The Economist Group, which operates the popular magazine The Economist. The index ranks world cities based on criteria like stability, culture, healthcare, infrastructure, and education.

The survey ranked Calgary at fifth position out of 140 world cities, the highest by any city in Canada. Vancouver and Toronto held on to their rankings from last year, ranking sixth and seventh, respectively. This makes three Canadian cities among the top 10 most ‘liveable’ cities in the world.
