List of best universities in Canada

Top Universities in Canada by Province 2013/2014

If you’re looking to study at one of the top universities in Canada, there’s a fairly strong chance you’ll have considered studying in either Toronto or Montréal. One Anglophone and one Francophone, these are the two largest cities in Canada, and both offer an impressive selection of world-leading universities – including Canada’s two highest-ranked, the University of Toronto and McGill University.

More broadly, the provinces within which Toronto and Montréal are based – Ontario and Quebec – each boast an extensive selection of world-class universities. However, this eastern side of Canada doesn’t have a complete monopoly on high quality higher education. Indeed Canada’s third highest-ranked university, the University of British Columbia, is way over on the west coast, in Vancouver.

Here’s a quick overview of the top universities in Canada by province, based on the QS World University Rankings® 2013/14.

Ontario has rather a lion’s share of the top universities in Canada.

It’s also home to Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, and the country’s largest city, Toronto. The latter is known for its international diversity, thriving cultural scene, busy financial district – and strong selection of universities.

The top universities in Ontario are:

  • University of Toronto (ranked 17= in the world; 1st in Canada)

Close to Canada so you won't have far to drive when the country collapses-lol.
Other pluses: near Seattle, Universities, I-5, water and outdoor activities (far too many to list).
Lots of research facilities so that may help with using your education for a job, laid-back type people (Western WA. is more of a high techy, aging hippi, music scene-very educated people here and we are the proud producers of the very first atomic bomb used in WWII which was mostly made at the Hanford Nuclear facility).
Lots of high tech computer firms including Microsoft, we also have Boeing, it's like a small Los Vegas out here with now brightly lite casino's everywhere
