toronto rankings

Toronto ranked one of the most livable cities in the world

Once again, Metropolis Magazine has named Toronto one of the liveable cities in the world. This year, however, the New York-based publication ranked us number nine (behind Melbourne), whereas last year, we took the top spot.

It's unclear why we dropped in the rankings, but Metropolis mentioned the incoming Under Gardiner park, our new LRT lines and bike lanes, and dedication to creating a more pedestrian-friendly streetscape as positives.

Toronto is the only Canadian city on the list, and the highest ranked city in North America. Here's the full list of Metropolis Magazine's most liveable cities:

  • Copenhegan
  • Berlin
  • Helsinki
  • Singapore
  • Vienna
  • Tokyo
  • Oslo
  • Melbourne
  • Toronto
  • Portland
