How Canada Performs is a multi-year research program to help leaders identify relative strengths and weaknesses in Canada’s socio-economic performance. This website is the flagship product. It helps policy makers, organization leaders, and all Canadians answer the following questions: How does Canada’s quality-of-life report card compare to that of other countries? Is Canada’s quality of life sustainable? Has it improved? What must Canada do to provide a high and sustainable quality of life for all Canadians?
This website presents data and analysis on Canada’s performance relative to that of 16 peer countries in six performance categories: Economy, Innovation, Environment, Education and Skills, Health, and Society.
