The Toronto Region Board of Trade looked at 24 major world cities, which they called “metro areas.” The metro areas were measured on 33 indicators grouped into 2 domains: Economy (18) and Labour Attractiveness (13). New this year to the Scorecard is “the “Human Capital Lens”, which sets out to benchmark Toronto’s human capital against the eleven other North American metro regions.

According to this research, the 10 most prosperous metro areas are:

  1. Paris, France – 2012 ranking: 1st
  2. Calgary, Canada – 2012 ranking: 4th
  3. London, England – 2012 ranking: 3rd
  4. Oslo, Norway – 2012 ranking: 8th
  5. Madrid, Spain – 2012 ranking: 9th
  6. Toronto, Canada – 2012 ranking: 5th
  7. San Francisco, United States – 2012 ranking: 2nd
  8. Seattle, United States – 2012 ranking: 6th
  9. Sydney, Australia – 2012 ranking: 12th
  10. Tokyo, Japan – 2012 ranking: 11th

Canada and United States tied for the country with the most metro areas in the top 10. Though Canada faired well, areas for improvement included productivity and innovation. Education was one area where Toronto excelled, and was it was 2nd only to Calgary when it came to the number of degrees people held.

“Toronto’s best results come from the Labour Attractiveness domain, where Toronto maintains its top ranking as the most diverse metro with the highest share of foreign-born residents. Overall, Toronto ranks fifth on Labour Attractiveness, and 12th on Economy”
