The top universities are:

McGill
U of T
UBC

But if you're just going by intelligence of the students, very university has it share of smart and dumb students.

Most universities have a program or two where they are one of the top (top 10) in the country. Need to specify a faculty.

For example:

Waterloo is top for science & technology while Laurier is top for business and economics

UBC in the hard sciences; I thought the University of Western Ontario kicked butt in Chemical Engineering etc. but I'm a little out of date, not to mention the wrong part of the country.

World University Rankings | Top Universities

Lists the top 200 unis in the world, including Canadian Unis.

Frankly, I'm not sure how university rankings can be useful beyond providing evidence about a school's reputation. If I want to be a doctor I'd rather go to Johns Hopkins than Penn State but if I'm looking for a business school it's Penn State every day of the week and twice on Saturday.

Mount Saint-Vincent.

And together with the other Maritime colleges (Mount Allison, UPEI, Moncton) that makes a high concentration of unis per capita.

Dalhousie, that is in Halifax, is ranked pretty good for medical school.
