The criterion for the 2021 Best Countries Report were determined after collecting data of over 17,000 business- and college-educated people who are middle class or higher, and citizens that represent their country nationally.
The data looked at storytelling to explore how countries fared on several different global issues, such as corruption and racial equality.
According to the report, “Canada is perceived as having a good job market, caring about human rights, and is committed to social justice."
Canada also scored the highest marks for quality of life and social purpose and the third most business-friendly and transient.
