Canada Ranked #1 Country for Women to Live – Why Female Students Choose to Study English in Toronto and Vancouver

Group of Students Studying English at ILACIn a survey of 370 gender experts from around the globe, Canada was ranked the #1 country for women to live and work. Women in Canada have a higher quality of life, better job opportunities and more freedoms than in any other country in the world.

The poll asked international NGOs, journalists, lawyers, academics and other specialists to rank the best and worst G20 countries for women under six categories:

  • workplace opportunities
  • access to resources
  • participation in politics
  • quality of health
  • freedom from violence
  • freedom from trafficking and slavery

Canada ranked first in all categories followed by Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia. The United States came in sixth place overall and Saudi Arabia and India were at the bottom of the list.

Female students often choose to study English in Canada due to its reputation as a safe and democratic society. Canada’s education system is also one of the best in the world, which is why so many people choose to study English in Toronto and Vancouver, its two major cities where English is spoken.

The poll was conducted by TrustLaw, a news service operated by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, a charity operated by Thomson Reuters.
