A look at a breakdown of the overall rankings reveals Canada’s other strong areas, but also where there is room for improvement.

Canada scores highly in the categories for citizenship, entrepreneurship and on being ‘open for business’.

But the scores are lower in the categories for ‘heritage’ and ‘movers’, the latter stemming from its status as a developed nation.

The developing nations of the Middle East and Asia score more highly in this category, including the UAE, India, Singapore and Japan.
