In the Comprehensive category, the University of Victoria ranks in 1st place, Simon Fraser University in 2nd place, and the University of Waterloo at 3rd place.

The Primarily Undergraduate category, the Mount Allison University in New Brunswick was ranked as Number1 , followed by the Acadia University in Nova Scotia, and the University of Northern British Columbia and the University of Lethbridge in Alberta each ranked at 3rd place.

Maclean’s senior editor Mary Dwyer explains that the Primarily Undergraduate category’s rankings come from information provided by students, parents, and graduates of the schools,
to see whether or not they would go back to school, if such an opportunity was given to them; she also added that each university agrees that there should be an accountability system set in place for the public.
