Canada Is Back In The Top 10 Of The Least Corrupt Countries

Canada Least Corrupt

Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) tracks corruption worldwide and their 2007 Index was just published recently. 2007 CPI looked at 180 countries (the greatest country coverage so far) and collected corruption related data carried out by 14 expert opinion surveys. Canada is back in the top 10 of the least corrupt countries.

 In 2006 Canada fell out of the top 10 of the least corrupt counties. Critics argued that sponsorship scandal had a major role ranking Canada out of the top 10. I am glad we are no longer in the same ranking as 2006. Canada has always been a corruption free country and congratulations to Canada for maintaining this achievement. I expect Canada to rank even higher on the list in 2008.

Let me give you the top ten 2007 least corrupt countries with their score:

  • Denmark 9.4
  • Finland 9.4
  • New Zealand 9.4
  • Singapore 9.3
  • Sweden 9.3
  • Iceland 9.2
  • Netherlands 9.0
  • Switzerland 9.0
  • Canada 8.7
  • Norway 8.7
