Students study in a Canadian comp sci program found through the 2020 Maclean's computer science program rankings.

The top five computer science programs across Canada, as ranked by Maclean's, remain the same in 2020. We do see a bit of movement — Concordia has made it into the top ten, and the University of New Brunswick the top 20 — but much like the programs themselves, these rankings are competitive.

Maclean's rankings are based on the program's reputation, research reputation, and a measure of the program's publications and citations. Check out the rankings for 2020:
