For the fifth consecutive year, Canada ranks No. 1 overall for providing a good quality of life. Survey respondents view the North American country as No. 1 for being politically stable, No. 4 for having a well-developed public education system that was acknowledged by the World Economic Forum to be the best in the world, and No. 2 for having a good job market, a perception supported by independent research. Canada is seen as possessing the most well-developed free public health care system. It is rated in the top 10 in all but one of the nine attributes, affordability, where Asian countries dominate. Canada has a very strong banking system and a justice system that is equal for all.
Canada is a truly multicultural country with rich ethnic diversity. Multiculturalism is adopted in Canada as a national policy.
Canada recognizes dual citizenship, it supports multicultural and multilingual enterprises, it encourages minority representation in the workforce and in educational institutions, and it provides full support for newcomers to Canada (translation services, immigration advice).
