Canadian Universities Among the Top Most Employable Schools in the World

The study’s graduate employment rankings were based on several major factors. These factors include whether a university offered its students networking options with future employers, whether more time and resources were invested in a student’s skill-set, and who employers believed produced the most talented and competent graduates.

Of the 750 institutions that were included in the study, eight Canadian universities made the top 200 list. The University of Toronto ranked first in Canada, and 12th worldwide, as having the most employable graduates. Although MIT ranked first worldwide, the University of Toronto ranked ahead of MIT in terms of quality of internship and work placement programs. 

The University of Waterloo was not too far behind, ranking second in Canada and 25th in the world. The University of Alberta and McMaster University rounded out the top 100, respectively being third and fourth in Canada. Other universities that made the top 200 list for employability included Queen’s University, Western University, University of Calgary, and Université de Montréal.

Canada a Top Choice for International Students

With half a million foreign students coming to Canada every year, Canadian universities continue to be a top choice for international students. Among being some of the best universities around the world, Canadian schools are also known for relative affordability, great student life, and permanent immigration options. 

After graduating from a Canadian institution, most international students are then eligible to apply for a Post-Graduate Work Permit (PGWP). This open work permit allows international graduates to work and live in Canada for up to three years. After gaining one year of work experience, they will be eligible to apply for permanent residence through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) of the Express Entry system.
