According to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Global Liveability Ranking, which scores 140 cities on five lifestyle categories, six of the top 10 livable cities in the world are in Australia and Canada. Melbourne ranked first, Vienna was second and Vancouver third, with Toronto, Calgary, Adelaide and Perth rounding up the top seven, though the scores differentiating the quality of life in the top 15 to 20 cities were marginal.
A comprehensive report by the Conference Board of Canada has shown that Vancouver stands out within Canada as a centre for wealth management activity, higher than any other financial activity in the city.
Mizuho Bank Canada, AdvantageBC, The Business Council of British Columbia (BCBC) and HQ Vancouver are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.
Canada has four main global financial centres—Montréal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver—each with its own unique strengths. A new Conference Board of Canada report suggests that the cities complement each other, allowing Canada’s financial services sector to have a depth and breadth beyond what any one financial centre would be able to provide.
The primary objective of this report is to foster support for the extension of payment settlement hours in Canada. Extended payment settlement hours will create a more favourable environment for Canadian financial service companies to compete in a changing global marketplace as well as enhance Canada’s position to capture future business opportunities in Asia.
