In assessing the calibre of faculty, Maclean’s examines their success in securing research grants from each of the three major federal granting agencies. The figures below show the average size and number of peer-adjudicated research grants from both the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The size of grants is listed per full-time faculty member; the number of grants is per 100 full-time faculty members. The ranking reflects a weighted average of the two.

(St. Thomas is exempted from reporting information for this indicator as it does not offer science programs. Its overall score is calculated on the remaining indicators.)
