Looking for a new place to hang your hat? Consider Vancouver, which tops the list of the world’s most liveable cities for the fifth year running, Reuters reports. The annual survey from the Economist Intelligence Unit ranks cities on stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure, and Vancouver scored 98%. Other leaders:

  1. Melbourne, Australia
  2. Vienna, Austria
  3. Toronto, Canada
  4. Calgary, Canada
Do Canada and Australia continue to dominate? What's the top US city (which holds a sort-of dismal 29th place)? Find out here. (More liveable cities stories.)
