Ottawa is among the world’s top cities for work-life balance, according to a new report by information technology company Kisi Inc.

The report, which assessed 51 U.S. cities and 49 global cities, ranked Canada’s capital in seventh place — just behind Geneva — based on factors such as remote working opportunities (38 per cent), the percentage of overworked employees (10 per cent), access to health care (97 per cent), mental-health support (92 per cent) and diversity, equity and inclusion factors such as gender and LGBTQ2S+ equality (94 per cent).
