The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the leading universities in Canada is based on data acquired from Microsoft Academic Graph on 06-12-2021. Position in our global university ranking is based on a sum of H-index values of every leading scientist associated with that university. A leading scientist is a scholar with a D-index (discipline H-index) higher than a predetermined threshold (in most cases 30 or 40) for their areas of research. Research.com’s ranking of best universities in Canada only lists 1000 universities with the highest H-index total. Show more
