We’re not surprised that Canada has made yet another list, this time for being one of the most desirable places in the world. Look at us, our stunning landscapes, bustling cities, and multicultural communities – it’s not a shocker that the rest of the world sees us with awe and admiration.

U.K. Travel magazine, Wanderlust has just revealed the winners of its Wanderlust Travel Awards 2022 and Canada managed to snag a few spots in three categories – most desirable country, most desirable city, and most desirable region.

Viewers voted their favourite places, people, and travel brands that have “captured your imagination and ignited your wanderlust.”
