Canada continues to gain international recognition year after year as one of the best countries to live in, for the past two years placing second in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual world ranking survey. Highly regarded in the international community as a country full of friendly people and natural beauty, Canada is second to only Switzerland as the overall best country to live in.
However with a landscape that ranges from rivers and mountains to wide open plains, it can be hard to decide where to live.
