Toronto topped many lists including 5th best city in the world for millennials, one of the best urban brands in the world and we are now climbing to the top of another list.
According to this year Index Nestpick Work-from-anywhere reported that Toronto was ranked as the 12th city in the world for working from home.

Before the pandemic and especially during the pandemic, there were advancements in technology and digital connectivity that provide workers with the ability to work from anywhere.

This means that if freelance digital nomads, freelancers or just remote workers could work from a city without having a job located in the city they are in, the city could rank higher.

Some aspects that positively impacted Toronto’s score include internet speed and capacity, LBGT + and gender equality, remote work infrastructure, and healthcare.
Toronto lost a few points because it does not offer a digital nomad or freelance visa.
