With those marks, you should be able to get into most places(provided you have a life outside school).
Usually, people go with Waterloo or U of T. Waterloo if you want a lot of work experience. U of T if you are interested in doing some research.
In general, Waterloo grads find it easier to get jobs. More U of T grads go to graduate school, and U of T does have better research facilities/funding.

how is mcmaster for engineering and general sciences

Mcmaster is known mainly for it's health science program. Their life sciences aren't bad either.
However, if you want general science, it's not bad either. I've visited their campus on many an occasion, and found all facilities to be adequate. However, they're just not "known" for their general sciences.

For engineering, I'd put it just behind U of T and Waterloo, but there is quite a gap. Unless they have a specific program that you want, go to waterloo=).

What grade are you in?

If you were moving to BC, I'd consider UBC and SFU. Both have amazing engineering programs. But since you're staying in Toronto...idk..I hear a lot about U of T, but I'm from the west coast.

I was going to tell you that when I was looking up univerities for engineering, I had gone to some symposiums, and talked to the U of M head of engineering lady there, thats university of MB if your wondering, and she said that they had one of the best programs there, but if your wanting to stay around Toronto then I'm no help because I was going to apply to U of Victoria, U of BC, or U of M, and I applied to U of M since I'm from MB. But good luck in finding the right university that you want to attend.

Waterloo. Do the co-op. It's a 5-year program, but the experiences that you gain during co-op are invaluable. You will be a highly recruit-able graduate with hands on experience.

GL with applications.

the best unversity for engineering in Canada is McMaster. My friend goes there.

^Definitely not. I have a lot of respect for McMaster but engineering is not the school's forte. The health science and artsci programs draw the most attention at Mac.

Waterloo and Toronto are the main engineering schools in Canada.

@ilovescience, I wouldn't worry about bell curves if you want to go into engineering. Most of the time your recruiter will pay for your master's if they want you to get one. Just choose the best program with the best fit. Don't worry about bell curves as a prospective engineer. Of course, work hard in school but don't choose a school for the grades in engineering.

Haha Laurentian University for the win. Ultimately, engineering is preety standard, but go to Waterloo or U of T like everyone says. Looks better on resume. Plus you get what you pay for and you will pay an arm and a leg to go there lol

Is Queen's even in this argument or have I been mislead?

Queen's is good, but I don't think it's top 5 (which would probably be U of T, Waterloo, Mac, UBC, and McGill).

Depends on the discipline. I'm taking Chem Eng at Queen's and the program is actually very good, lots of professional development, good profs, etc, most likely as a result of the industrial and research partners in the area. If you want to take geological or mining engineering, it's probably (at least) the best university in the province.

On the other hand, if I was taking something like mechanical, civil or computer engineering, I don't think Queen's would necessarily be your best bet.

Another interesting thing about Queen's is that while there's no co-op program per se, you can take an internship after your second or third year that's up to 16 months long. It's interesting to be able to work on a project for that length of time, and it gives you a good idea of what a field is really like. Also, it's probably more money than you'd ever otherwise see during your undergraduate career.
