Why Canada is still attracting Foreigners?

Canada is not the best place to live in the world. At least that is according to one study that seeks to assess the degree to which the country is providing a "high and sustainable quality of life". The order is as follows:
  1. Denmark
  2. Norway
  3. Sweden
  4. Netherlands
  5. Finland
  6. Austria
  7. Canada
  8. Belgium
  9. Ireland
  10. Germany
  11. Switzerland
  12. France
  13. Australia
  14. U.K.
  15. Italy
  16. Japan
  17. U.S.
Canada gets low mark on child poverty, income inequality and gender equity. Why do we attract so many immigrants and people investing in real estate in the hopes of calling Canada their future home? Because we score high on diversity. Canada is the best performer of the group of 17 countries above on acceptance of diversity. We also score high on life satisfaction. So while we work towards making this country number One again, congratulations are in order to my fellow Canadians. The study is by Conference Board of Canada slated to be released today.
