Vancouverites know their city is pretty great, and the world agrees.
The City of Glass made the No. 6 spot on the Global Liveability Index 2018, released Tuesday by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
Vancouver got a score of 97.3 out of 100, bested by fellow Canadian city Calgary at No. 4, but just beating out Toronto at No. 7.
Communities in the 140-city list were ranked on 30 qualitative and quantitative factors, which were wrapped up in five broad categories:
- culture and environment
While Vancouver ranked 95 or above for most categories, it was let down by a rank of 92.9 in infrastructure.
