Canada's social ladder stumbles on housing costs

 
Canada’s global ranking on the Social Progress ladder would likely be higher if not for housing costs, according to an international survey of 100 countries.
The 2017 Social Progress Index found that Canada ranked sixth, higher than any other G7 country, with strengths in personal rights, basic education and universities.
“Canada has produced better social and environmental outcomes than the U.S. and more than 100 other countries. It has many strengths to celebrate, but it also has a few stubborn challenges to overcome,” Social Progress Imperative CEO Michael Green said.
Among the challenges is the cost of housing. Survey researchers found that less than 50 per cent of Canadians are satisfied with the delivery of affordable housing, compared to 62 per cent four years ago. Teams from Harvard Business School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology compile the Social Progress Index each year.
