Toronto loses its reputation but Vancouver and Montreal join the elite
Toronto has dropped out of the top 10 most reputable cities in the world after almost hitting the top spot a year ago. The Reputation Institute, based in New York, compile their annual list based on factors such as; the appeal of the environment including recreational and shopping facilities; the effectiveness of local government including whether leaders are well-respected and the adequacy of the infrastructure; and the strength of the economy. Toronto was number 2 last year but has slipped out of the top 10 this year, although is still ranked as having a ‘strong’ reputation and comes just one place behind New York and above Dublin and San Francisco. Meanwhile Vancouver has made it to number 7, beating London and Montreal has edged in at number 10. The city with the best reputation globally is Vienna, Austria.
