Canada has quietly jumped into second place among preferred global destinations for employees considering moving abroad for work.

While the United States remains firmly in front, Canada has leapfrogged both the United Kingdom and Australia in terms of desirability, according to a poll released by the Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC), a not-for-profit organization in Toronto.

The 2017 CERC Global Mobility Survey garnered responses from 10,091 workers in 20 countries.
