Since Trudeau took office in 2015, Canada has fallen 24 places on the world quality of life index, going from 9th place to 33rd.

Canada drops from 6th to 33rd on quality of life index

The numbers come from Numbeo, the world’s largest cost-of-living database, which sources data from nearly 800,000 contributors.

The overall quality of life score is based on eight key factors: purchasing power index, safety index, healthcare index, cost of living index, property price-to-income ratio, traffic commute time index, and pollution index. A ninth factor, the climate index, was added after 2015.

According to the data, in every single category, Canada is doing worse.

In terms of purchasing power, Canadians have dropped from a score of 105.1 (9th, just behind Denmark, Australia, and Sweden) to 83.3 (27th).

For safety, Canada has dropped from 62.5 in 2015 to 54.8 in 2024; healthcare, from 69.6 to 69.1; cost of living, 81.8 to 68.4; property price-to-income ratio, 5.5 to 11 (from 6th place to 34th place in terms of nationwide affordability).

Even in terms of the pollution index, which is the only score besides property price-to-income you’d want to see go down, Canada under Trudeau has managed to do worse, rising from 27.3 in 2015 (8th place) to 30.2 in 2024 (17th place)

In other words, by every metric used to determine quality of life, Canada is doing worse than before Trudeau took office in terms of worldwide rankings.

And while every Canadian may not know these figures, they’re surely feeling it. And it’s being reflected in polls, whether in terms of Trudeau’s nosediving approval rating or in Canadians’ use of food banks.
