Ottawa was the second most-livable city in Canada and No. 14 in the world in the annual Mercer Quality of Living survey.

Vancouver was ranked tops in Canada and retained its fifth-place spot globally.

The latest Mercer survey said Vienna retains the top spot as the city with the world’s best quality of living, also keeping its first-place ranking.

The survey also found that Zurich and the New Zealand city of Auckland were ranked second and third with Munich taking fourth spot.

The survey says Canada offers some of the best quality of living in the world. After Vancouver and Ottawa, Toronto was ranked 15th, Montreal 23rd and Calgary 32nd.

Globally, the cities with the lowest quality of living are: Khartoum, Sudan; N’Djamena, Chad; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and Bangui in the Central African Republic.

Baghdad ranked last.
