Two of Toronto’s universities have made the top 15 in Maclean’s Magazine Canadian university rankings in the comprehensive categories.
The two schools to snag spots in the top 15 might be surprising because the University of Toronto is not one of them. That’s right, York University came in sixth place, and soon-to-be renamed Ryerson University placed 11th.
Ryerson University moved up from 12th place last year, and York University’s ranking stayed the same.

According to Maclean’s, universities in the comprehensive category have a “significant amount of research activity and a wide range of programs at the undergraduate and graduate level, including professional degrees.”
Schools were ranked based on the following categories:
- Student awards
- Student/faculty ratio
- Faculty awards
- Social sciences and humanities grants
- Medical/science grants
- Total research dollars
- Operating budget
- Library expenses
- Library acquisitions
- Scholarships and bursaries
- Student services
While it may be surprising that the University of Toronto didn’t make that specific list, they did make second place for the Maclean’s ranking of best medical doctoral schools in the country. Maclean’s said that the schools in this category “have a broad range of Ph.D. programs and research, as well as medical schools.”
