Hi, I was thinking about taking a specialist physics and mathematics course at a Ontario University. Do you think that if I get a good GPA, say 3.5+, I would have a great chance at getting in MIT's masters program? What should I prepare for in my BA program to better my chances?

You will have a chance, but not necessarily a good chance. I have a 3.6GPA in major (I have some really bad freshman non-technical course grades), two summers of research experience, and recommendations from my summer supervisors who seemed very impressed with my work. I applied to Cornell and Carnegie-Mellon as my reach schools, and I put my odds of getting into either at roughly 1/1000.

I think you'd want more of like a 3.8+ GPA, along with research experience, good letters, and stellar GRE's.

Even this won't guarantee your acceptance into an MIT grad program, or any grad program in the top 10 for that matter.

Are you sure they even offer a masters in what you want? Many schools don't offer terminal masters; apply for the PhD or don't apply at all.
