I'm biased, I live in Vancouver.
So, I'll let the world speak for me, objectively of course.
"There are a lot of positives. Americans loved the Winter Olympics last year, Canada was in Afghanistan and that got a lot of press here, the Canadian economy is good and that's impressive; there's simply an absence of negatives. You have never attacked any of our embassies, you don't want to direct any missiles at us and unlike the southern border, there are no problems with organized crime or drug crimes - you're peaceful and stable. What's not to love?"
- Christopher Sands, an Canada-U.S. relations expert at the Hudson Institute in Washington
"The Economist magazine again has ranked three Canadian cities are among the world's top five most livable cities, Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary made The Economist magazine's 2012 list released earlier this week. The survey ranks 140 cities based on a number of factors, including health care, stability, culture and environment, education and infrastructure..."

Canada scores top five in economic freedom ranking, US plummets to 18th
"The Bank of Canada today maintained its benchmark interest rate at one per cent, the same level it has been at for more than two years; It marks the 18th consecutive policy meeting that the bank has opted to stand pat, the longest stretch that Canada's monetary policy has gone unchanged since the 1950s.
USA fiscal cliff just a toboggan ride for Canadians
"Canada's overall police-reported crime rate dropped six per cent in 2011 from the previous year, reflecting the lowest crime figures recorded since 1972. Statistics compiled by the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (CCJS) and released Tuesday by Statistics Canada showed that the crime rate in 2011 was at its lowest level in 39 years. The decline continues a downward trend that began in the 1990s"
"As an affluent, high-tech industrial society in the trillion-dollar class Canada enjoys a substantial trade surplus with the US, which absorbs about three-fourths of Canadian exports each year. Canada is the US's largest foreign supplier of energy, including oil, gas, uranium, and electric power. Given its great natural resources, highly skilled labor force, and modern capital plant..."

Where are you from?
I live in Canada and feel pretty safe here.
Many people are fake though( I guess like everywhere this days) ... Also, here are many multicultural cities... I don't know if you find it good or not.
The reason not to chose this country for living is the weather- it is Very cold in Canada. Winter begins in mid fall and ends only in the end of April... The winds are very strong.
I am happy in general here, but planning to move closer to equator one day...
First 3 things come on my mind when I hear Canada: Cold, work and high bills, multicultural population

how are you able to adore a place which you have never been to yet? this is like seeing previews of a action picture and you get so excited and prefer it, then you definately get there and that's a significant sadness because of the fact it replaced into no longer as super as you predicted it to be. i'm no longer asserting Canada is a foul place. in actuality, I stay her and that i admire the organic attractiveness, the friendly human beings, and our custom has considered one of those super experience of humour regularly. yet i think of that somebody ought to pass to areas of Canada first and notice what areas they like. super distinction once you stay in Vancouver vs. Winnipeg, fantastically while January rolls around! Likewise, super cultural ameliorations residing in Calgary vs Montreal. this is like putting somebody from manhattan city into the middle of friendly Prairie, Wisconsin...there will be a average custom marvel.

In my opinion, best country ever. If the cold doesn't bother you, then there's no problem. I mean, I've lived here... we'll, I'm born here, and I'm used to the cold. But it still annoys me. Try not going towards Vancouver and near provinces.. the snow is worst there.
