Among Gen Z-ers, Toronto is one of the most desirable cities

Toronto has been found to be one of the world’s best cities in terms of digital infrastructure, health care, and education.

This was an especially prevalent view among members of Generation Z, according to a study by apartment search portal Nestpick.

The city earned a strong score of 86.2 out of 100, with exceptional results in the most important factors. Such criteria include a global culture, the availability of digital infrastructure, e-payment/e-banking facilities, streamlined government transactions (usually via online channels), and the presence of world-class education and health care.

Toronto was ranked top 4 worldwide, with Los Angeles, Stockholm, and London leading the list.

“Alongside facing global crises such as climate change, this digitally connected age group will also have to tackle artificial intelligence replacing humans, meaning that Gen Z-ers must train in machine learning to stay ahead of the curve,” Nestpick stated.

Similar results were also reported by the latest edition of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s liveability index, which found that Toronto is one of the best North American cities to live in.                                                              

Vienna and Melbourne were deemed the most liveable cities in the world, while all the North American cities in the top 10 global list were all from Canada.

Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver were all characterized by vibrant economies, top-tier education, and excellent public health care, along with robust transport systems.

“Overall, our index remains dominated by medium-sized cities in wealthy countries,” EIU said in its analysis.

“The upsides of these cities tend to be fully realized. You get a good collection of cultural activities, you get good access to healthcare and education,” EIU Asia regional director Duncan Innes-Ker told Bloomberg. “But you don’t get a lot of downsides that tend to come with big cities, things like traffic congestion, crime problems and general wear and tear.”
