There’s a new piece of information to consider when applying to universities. A survey of 2,500 recruiters in 20 countries has found the 150 schools with the “most employable graduates.”

British and U.S. universities dominate, while only seven Canadian schools made the list. All of the Canadian entries are in Ontario and Quebec, despite the fact that western Canada’s schools fared well in the 2013 Maclean’s University Rankings. The University of British Columbia, for example, came second in the Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking but didn’t register here.

With that noted, here are the seven Canadian universities that made the 2012 Global Employability ranking, a list by from French firm Emerging and German pollster Trendence:

24. University of Toronto (3rd in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
29. McGill University (1st in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
30. University of Montreal, H.E.C Montreal (12th in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
53. McMaster University (6th in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
56. Queen’s University (4th in in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
85. Western University (11th in Maclean’s Medical Doctoral ranking)
108. University of Waterloo (3rd in Maclean’s Comprehensive ranking)
