Vancouver, Toronto among world’s top cities for young people for 2015

YouthfulCities Index ranks New York City No. 1 – London, Berlin, San Francisco, and Paris round out top five for young people to live, work

Vancouver is one of the best cities in the world for young people and professionals, according to a new report from the YouthfulCities Index.

You probably didn’t need a new report to tell you that, but it’s out there.

“Over 10,000 young people answered a survey looking at aspects of city life such as music, film, fashion and nightlife,” writes The Independent‘s Heather Saul. “Each city was also judged on wider factors such as environment, safety, affordability, diversity and employment.”

The study actually classified the resulting towns as the world’s ‘Most Youthful’ cities, ranking them by their liveability for millennials and others in their age range.

Vancouver finished second in Canada – behind Toronto at sixth – and just ahead of Montreal, which finished 18th.

New York City finished first, with London, Berlin, San Francisco, and Paris rounding out the top five.
