Toronto Canada is 2nd Safest City in the World

Toronto Safest City

There are so many reasons why Toronto is Canada’s largest destination for immigrants but it just gained another reason! The Economist made a list of the safest cities in 2021 based on several factors such as health safety, infrastructure, personal security, environmental security, etc. Toronto previously came in sixth place in 2019 but how has jumped to second place.

Despite a surge in gun violence, stunt driving, and other events during the lockdown last year, Toronto was only named the second safest city in the world, trailing only Copenhagen, which often ranks high on lists of the finest and safest places to live.

This year, a total of 60 cities were evaluated based on 76 different indicators, with Toronto receiving the high score of 82.2 out of a possible 100 (compared to Copenhagen’s 82.4) after excelling in the new bracket, which considers the city’s long-term sustainability plan, waste management systems, and other factors.

Toronto also ranked well in infrastructure security, given the streets’ pedestrian friendliness and how secure/safe the public transportation system is.

The way that Toronto responded to the COVID-19 pandemic helped boost their score due to their pandemic preparation and the healthcare system.

One thing we learned during the pandemic is that you cand o your most effective job, by far, if everybody is involved in safety – in particular grassroots community organisations. That way, you don’t leave anybody out to be marginalized and get into unsafe circumstances in their own lives or to create unsafe circumstances for others

– Mayor John Tory

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.
