61 Best universities for Physics in Canada

Below is the list of best universities in Canada ranked based on their research performance in Physics. A graph of 8.21M citations received by 241K academic papers made by 61 universities in Canada was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
