Maclean’s, a Canadian news publication that covers topics about Canadian politics, popular culture, and current events, released its annual university ranking of the best schools across Canada by faculty awards and McGill University secured the second spot overall. The ranking was based on a five-year tally (2018 to 2022) of the number of full-time professors, per 1,000, who have won national awards.
The University of Ottawa ranked third with Halifax’s Dalhousie University and Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario rounding off the top five.
