Top Universities in Canada
U15, the Group of 15 Canadian Universities is central to fostering intellectual, social, economic and cultural innovation and advancement of Canada’s international influence and effectiveness. The U15 are absolutely unmatched in their delivery of quality education as is evidenced in their $5.3 Billion research income with 87% private-sector research of Canada carried out by the group. Furthermore, the group holds ownership to 81% technology licenses as patents and intellectual property that are key to attracting global investment for business operations internationally. However, Canada like all other supreme education deliverers has a diverse subject pool to choose from and hence a range of other institutions outside of U15 also have specialisations that are highly appealing.
Some of the top Canada universities include the University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, McGill, Dalhousie University, The University of British Columbia and the University of Alberta.
Popular courses for studying in Canada
Canadian universities and colleges have a comparative advantage in the following study areas: Aerospace, Animation, Medicine, Engineering (Specialised in Automotive, Civil, Mining and Petroleum), Energy, Telecommunications, Agriculture, IT, Environmental Sciences, Biotechnology, Business as well as Finance and Economics.
Canada’s economy is amongst the wealthiest in the world offering a breadth of opportunities across a diverse portfolio of industries driven by innovation. Cross industry partnerships and close-knit relationships with universities have been key to pumping investments into research and development. The result is a substantial balance between high-tech manufacturing sector and knowledge intensive services. Aerospace, automotive, bio-products, biopharmaceuticals, chemicals and plastics, medical devices, renewable energy, software and wireless technologies, banking and insurance, finance and business consulting are some areas in which Canada finds itself expanding its core competencies. Hence, Canada has essentially built a solid economy around high growth sectors that indicate healthy prospects for the future.
One of Canada’s biggest headaches is the fear of not being able to align its huge investment opportunities with a support system of skilled workers. Although Canada has a well-equipped education system that is effective in producing and nurturing talent for its economy, shifting demographics and an ageing population is a concern for the longer-term sustainability of Canada’s economy. Hence, there are an array of opportunities that are open to the international labour market offering possibilities of healthy job security and immigration. Construction as well as mining and petroleum sectors are some of the industries that will face severe skill shortages over the next decade and are hence demanding engineers specialised in mining, petroleum, civil, mechanical, geological, computer and chemical. Furthermore, there is demand for financial and investment analysts, geoscientists and oceanographers, medical laboratory and radiation technologists, physiotherapists, apart from electrophysiological diagnostic technologists.
