There are three reasons why Canada is one of the
best countries in the world. First, Canada has an
excellent health care system. All Canadians have access
to medical services at a reasonable price. Second,
Canada has a high standard of education. Students are
taught by well-trained teachers and are encouraged to
continue studying at university. Finally, Canada's cities
are clean and efficiently managed. Canadian cities
have many parks and lots of space for people to live. As
a result, Canada is a desirable place to live.
