City of opportunity: Toronto ranks No. 2 in the world

Toronto ranks as the second-best city in the world for business, life and innovation, a new report claims.

The report by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Partnership for New York City looked at 26 of the world's top cities, identifying greatness in terms of growing, retaining and attracting talent.

Beat out for the top spot by New York City — and followed closely by surprise contender San Francisco — Toronto stood out among the world's "metro powerhouses" in areas of business opportunities, culture, livability and innovation. The study named Toronto a "beta" city, not yet "part of the conversation with London, Paris and New York," but with the "building blocks of a superlative international city."

The Ontario capital's "smart immigration policies" helped set it apart from the competition.

The only Canadian city to make the list, Toronto was ranked #1 in quality of living, clean air, business-trip index, skyscraper construction, and sports and leisure. The city was #2 in the area of entrepreneurial environment. The main criticism of the city came from its cost of public transportation.

The 26 most successful cities, from best to "still great but not the best":

  1. New York City
  2. Toronto
  3. San Francisco
  4. Stockholm
  5. Sydney
  6. London
  7. Chicago
  8. Paris
  9. Singapore
  10. Hong Kong
  11. Houston
  12. Los Angeles
  13. Berlin
  14. Tokyo
  15. Madrid
  16. Seoul
  17. Beijing
  18. Abu Dhabi
  19. Shanghai
  20. Mexico City
  21. Moscow
  22. Santiago
  23. Istanbul
  24. Sao Paulo
  25. Johannesburg
  26. Mumbai
