Infromation on getting into get into the "top" graduate schools

Hi,
I am currently doing my undergraduate in math and physics at York University in Toronto. It is not considered to be a top Canadian school in physics. I am doing relatively very well in the school that I am in (I getting A's and A+'s in all my courses, with only A+'s in physics courses) and I got and NSERC grant for this summer and will probably get another one next summer (NSERC grant means you do research under a physics professor for the summer).

I would very much like to get into one of the top schools I always here about (MIT, Caltech, etc.) but does the fact that I come from a less respectable university mean that I will have a very hard time getting in?

Also I wanted to know what grades do graduate schools look? Is it from all 4 years or just the final 2?

Lastly if anyone knows what school is considered the best Canadian school for physics that would be helpful.

Thanks in advance
