I´ve only included the English-speaking universities because obviously English is the dominant language in the world. Also, I´ve only included universities which offer many graduate programs because these days a bachelors degree isn´t enough to get ahead, and those primarily undergraduate universities are basically glorified colleges anyway.

Most people would say Harvard is the greatest university in the world, but why is this so? Well, obviously because it has a great reputation, it´s hard to get into, it has some of the world´s best "medical/Science" researchers, and Harvard attracts many students outside its home state as well as many international students.

Based on these five criterias "of what I think makes a university great," I´ve punched in the numbers from the Maclean´s webstie and found out these were the top 20 universities in Canada.
