  • September 16, 2023 –Canada ranked second in a new listing ofthe world’s best countries. Switzerland
    topped the global rankings for the second year in a row. Canada edged out Germany as the second best,
    moving up from third position in 2022.

    The 2023 list was based on the results of a survey and analysis by the U.S. News & World Report;
    global marketing and communications services company WPP; and the Wharton School of the University
    of Pennsylvania.

    A September 6 media release by the partners explains that 87 countries were evaluated across
    73attributes. “Attributes are grouped into 10 subrankings, ranging from entrepreneurship and quality of
    life to power and heritage,” the release notes.

    Close to a million Canadians of Filipino heritage call Canada home. In the 2016 Census by Statistics
    Canada, they numbered over 837,000 and represented 2.6 percent of the population.

    Filipinos now comprise the fourth largest visible minority group in the country, at about 960,000 strong.
    The 2023 ranking notes Canada’s warm embrace of immigrants.

    “Canada’s expansive wilderness to the north plays a large role in Canadian identity, as does thecountry’s
    reputation of welcoming immigrants,” the report states.

    As well, “Canadians pride themselves in encouraging all of their citizens to honor their own cultures.
    In1971, Canada adopted a national policy of multiculturalism, which celebrates the country’s diversity.”

    Section 27 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms of the Constitution Act of 1982 states: “This
    Charter shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the preservation and enhancement of the
    multicultural heritage of Canadians.”

    The 2023 survey was administered from March 17 to June 12, 2023. It polled more than 17,000 people
    from 36 countries.

    The ranking and analysis project of U.S. News & World Report, WPP, and Wharton School is now on
    its eighth year.

    Overall, the top 10 countries are:
    1. Switzerland
    2. Canada
    3. Sweden
    4. Australia
    5. United States
    6. Japan
    7. Germany
