List of Universities in Canada

This is the current list of Public and Private Universities in Canada, their city, location, province, language, and year established.

Official List of Universities in Canada.

Universities in Canada are established and operate under provincial government charters. Most schools are members of Universities Canada (formerly the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC)). The title “university” is protected under federal regulation. Higher education institutions in Canada are prevented from becoming diploma mills by provincial legislation and regulation.

Each Canadian university is autonomous in academic matters including policies and procedures of quality assurance of its programs, instructors and procedures. Membership of Universities Canada, and the university’s provincial government charter, are seen as serving in lieu of institutional accreditation, both in Canada and abroad. Eight Canadian provinces have established bodies to provide a second level of quality assurance at universities
