10 Best Cities to Live for Opportunity

As a Toronto call centre we’re always interested in seeing how our city and country fairs on the world stage. This is a topic we’ve explored in posts like best country to livesmartest countries, the happiest countries, the  most peaceful countries, the most sustainable countries, the friendliest countries, the most charitable countries, the most prosperous countries, the best countries for quality of life, the best countries for business, the top countries for life expectancy, the best countries for working women, the best country for child well-being, the best countries from social progress, the best countries for higher education, the most popular countries, the least corrupt countries, the countries with the best reputation, the best countries for ease of doing business, the best countries for starting a business, the best country for business, the best country for customer satisfaction, the most gay positive country, the best countries with the most competitive economies, the best countries for entrepreneurship, the most sustainable countries, the best countries to grow old, the best country brand and the most youthful cities. Today, I’ll be adding the 10 best cities to live for opportunity according to the 5th edition of PwC’s Cities of Opportunity: Building the Future report that “tracks the performance of 27 of the world’s key urban centers.”

The purpose of the report “is twofold: to take a “snapshot” of the current state of infrastructure in our 27 Cities of Opportunity while, at the same time, moving forward and projecting the infrastructure needs of these cities a dozen years into the future, in 2025.” PwC worked in conjunction with project economists of Oxford Economics to put together Cities of Opportunity: Building the future.

They used ten indicators: city gateway, cost, ease of doing business, transport and infrastructure, demographics and livability, health, safety and security, intellectual capital and innovation, sustainability and natural environment, technological readiness and economic clout. These factors give an in-depth look at opportunity in the current economic climate and based on this data, the 10 best cities to live for opportunity are:

  1. Stockholm, Sweden – GDP: $88, 874. Population: 869,055
  2. Sydney, Australia – GDP: $68,770. Population: 4,475,822
  3. Toronto, Canada – GDP: $56, 341. Population: 2,833,287
  4. Paris, France – GDP: $103,779. Population: 2,2,65,648
  5. London, United Kingdom – GDP: $53,408. Population: 7,969,341
  6. San Francisco, United States – GDP: $118,218. Population: 814,644
  7. New York, United States – GDP: $87,061. Population: 8,408,519
  8. Chicago, United States – GDP: $64,017. Population: 2,647,094
  9. Tokyo, Japan – GDP: $43,285. Population: 13,024,836
  10. Berlin, Germany – GDP: $32,884. Population: 3,473,836

So Toronto was the only Canadian city to make the PwC’s Cities of Opportunity: Building the Future report, let alone the top 10. Pretty cool and we can still be so much better. Very cool indeed.
