Canada’s largest city is quickly gaining notoriety, and this time it’s not for baseball, Drake, Justin Bieber, lumberjacks or maple syrup.

A study released by Nestpick on global startup ecosystems has ranked Toronto #10 of 85 global cities, taking into consideration factors like salaries, cost of living, vacation days and gender equality.  Cities sharing spots with Toronto in the top 10 included tech hubs like Singapore, Berlin, Helsinki, and San Francisco.

Interestingly, Toronto placed third for its salary score, directly behind San Francisco and Zurich. For aspiring tech professionals and developers, Toronto is a potential gold mine of tech caterer and growth opportunity.

According to Nestpick’s managing director Ömer Kücükdere, “Certain cities may offer bigger paychecks, but after considering taxes and living expenses, the return may not be so high.”
