Canada was just ranked the second-best country in the world

This year’s rankings are somewhat of a reversal from last year, as countries get back on their feet, repairing their reputations by kickstarting their lockdown-ravaged economies and tourism sectors.
Our influential, welcoming, low-crime country ranked quite well, moving up in this year’s list to the #2 nation brand.

Canada had landed in third place on the NBI for the past couple of years, though this year the country has bumped up one spot in global reputations, snatching the second-place spot away from the United Kingdom, which has slipped to fifth place in the rankings.

Canada climbed from a ranking of 67.86 in 2020 to 70.64 in 2021, though this slight increase proved enough to push the maple leaf flag up to its new record of second place.
Though it wasn’t enough to claim the overall top position, Canada still ranked first across the poll’s governance, people, and immigration and investment indices, and still scored high in factors like exports, tourism, and culture.
Only Germany ranked better, holding onto its top spot for the fifth year in a row.
And while people see a rosy picture of Canada from abroad, our neighbour to the south is not looking as hospitable.
The United States’ ranking declined sharply in 2020, falling from sixth to 10th place. And though their pandemic recovery and rising tourism have helped bring them back up to #8, the States still have some catching up to do. It was only just five years ago that the U.S. held the top ranking on this list.
