Research Infosource released its 2022 list of Canada's Top 50 Research Universities, and McGill University and the Université de Montréal ranked third and fourth, respectively. The two institutions were upstaged by the University of British Columbia (2), and the University of Toronto (1).
The University of Alberta rounded off the top five with Quebec City's Université de Laval landing in the sixth spot.
The ranking is based on each university's research income generated in 2020-2021. "Sponsored research income includes all funds to support research received in the form of a grant, contribution or contract from all sources external to the institution," Research Infosource states.
