Canada is the best country for freelancers and remote workers

Making a living online? Then come to Canada!

The labor market has changed dramatically during the pandemic, and now a huge number of people are working from their homes rather than in offices. But who says that you have to work remotely from your own country?

Portal CircleLoop conducted a study and ranked the best countries for those who work remotely. The countries were evaluated according to a variety of criteria:

  • average speed of regular Internet and mobile Internet;
  • the average monthly cost of a standard Internet package;
  • the monthly cost of renting a one-bedroom apartment;
  • population happiness index;
  • the share of immigrants in the total population of the country;
  • job searches: the annual number of searches in search engines with the wording "Remote job in ... (country)".

Considering all the criteria, the experts gave scores to the countries. A maximum of 100 points could be obtained.

So, the top 10 are:

Country Internet speed, Mbit/sec Mobile internet speed Cost of Internet, USD Rent a flat, USD Happiness Index Share of migrants, % Searching for remote work Evaluation

A couple more advantages: Canada is one of the top ten happiest countries in the world and immigrants are treated well here. Incidentally, Canada also topped the most popular places to work ranking.
