Canada has been ranked as the seventh-best country in the world and its willingness to welcome people from everywhere else through immigration is one of its strengths.

“Canada is one of the best countries in the world,” proclaims Insider Monkey.

“As of 2024, it boasts a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $2.47 trillion. In 2021, the Human Development Index (HDI) of the country was 0.936. It spent 1.7 per cent of its GDP on research and development in 2021. In 2020, Canada had eight million foreign-born people.”

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) defines the HDI as a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and having a decent standard of living.

“The health dimension is assessed by life expectancy at birth, the education dimension is measured by mean of years of schooling for adults aged 25 years and more and expected years of schooling for children of school entering age,” notes the UNDP.

“Canada is a high-tech industrial society with a high standard of living,” noted the media outlet.

“Trade agreements in the 1980s and 1990s dramatically bolstered trade with the U.S., and now the two counties are each other’s largest trading partner. While the service sector is Canada’s biggest economic driver, the country is a significant exporter of energy, food and minerals. Canada ranks third in the world in proven oil reserves and is the world’s fourth-largest oil producer.

In 2021, the US News & World Report placed Canada at the top of that list.
