Toronto was ranked the world’s most resilient city, according to a recent report by Grosvenor Group (PDF).  The report studied 50 global cities and found that Toronto, and other Canadian cities, fared well, as they were generally well governed, well planned and had good access to resources, including water and energy. The resiliency ranking was determined by assessing the cities’ vulnerability to events and their ability to adapt to change and cope with adverse issues.
