Why not have a Toronto office space for rent in one of the world’s top five most livable cities? According to The Economist magazine, Toronto is ranked number 4 of the 140 cities they ranked. Their survey looks at criteria such as infrastructure, stability, culture, environment, education and health care. The highest possible score is 100. The cities were scored based on the scale of being acceptable, tolerable, uncomfortable, undesirable or intolerable under each of the categories.

Melbourne (Australia) topped the list with a score of 97.5, closely followed by Vienna (Australia), which achieved a score of 97.4. Vancouver (British Columbia) was third with an overall score of 97.3; Toronto came in fourth at 97.2. Surprisingly (another Canadian city) Calgary (Alberta) took the fifth place, tied with Adelaide (Australia) at 96.6. Coming in 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th, were Sydney (Australia), Helsinki (Finland), Perth (Australia), and Auckland (New Zealand).

A random group of office space Toronto and shared office space Toronto clients were asked to rank the same 10 cities on the same criteria as the other survey, except with the additional criteria of doing business as an entrepreneur and the informal study was focused on office space. Not surprisingly Melbourne office space again topped the list, because people seem to really want to live and work there. It was interesting that office space Sydney was tied for second with Toronto office space and Vancouver was tied for 5th with Calgary.
