Nova Scotia managed just a C grade in a report on quality of life released Wednesday by the Conference Board of Canada.
The report measured social performance in Canada, its provinces and 15 peer countries based on 10 indicators, and calculated an overall “society grade” for each based on the aggregate performance on these indicators.
Canada got a B rating, good for 13th overall, down from seventh place in the previous report. New Brunswick was the top province, also with a B, for 10th spot overall.
Norway, Denmark and Sweden got the only A ratings, while the U.S. and Japan finished last, each with a D.
