TORONTO — Vancouver is once again ranked the top city in North America in the latest annual quality of living rankings by consulting firm Mercer.

The city also maintained its fifth place among cities around the world and its place as the only North American city to crack the top 10.

Vienna, Austria took the top spot for overall quality of living, followed by Zurich, Switzerland, Auckland, New Zealand and Munich, Germany — all the same as a year ago.

The rankings are based on a broad range of factors including social and economic conditions, public services, recreation and environment.

Other Canadian cities on the list included Toronto at 15th, Ottawa at 17th, Montreal at 23rd and Calgary at 32nd.

The top U.S. city on the list was San Francisco at 28th.
