Maclean's Magazine is out with its 2006 University Rankings issue covering 42 Canadian colleges and universities. The magazine's web site has an interactive feature allowing readers to customize the rankings using 24 variables.
The top comprehensive universities are:
- University of Guelph
- University of Waterloo
- University of Victoria
The top medical schools are:
- McGill University
- Queen's University
- University of Toronto
The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that over two dozen schools boycotted the magazine's questionnaire and refused to provide performance-indicator information as they had for the prior 15 years because of concerns over the magazine's methodology. For more details, see here.
Also this week, the Globe and Mail issued its 2006 University Report Card, a ranking of 49 Canadian colleges and universities based on a survey of 32,700 students.
