The University of Waterloo is Canada’s most innovative university, according to a reputational survey from Maclean’s magazine.

Maclean’s annual ranking of Canadian universities, released today, also named Waterloo second for best overall, highest quality, and leaders of tomorrow out of the 49 universities surveyed.

“The University of Waterloo remains true to its roots and future ambitions, continuing to focus on co-op and experiential education, entrepreneurship and world–renowned research,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor of Waterloo. “We thank our students, researchers, faculty members, staff and external partners who have helped earn these distinctions for Waterloo.”

Maclean’s reputational rankings are the result of a national survey of high school guidance counsellors, university officials, heads of national organizations, recruiters and CEOs of companies across Canada. 

Recently, Pitchbook released its university rankings where it named Waterloo Canada’s top university for undergraduate venture-capital backed entrepreneurs, a category where it also ranked among the top 20 universities in the world.
