I go to Ryerson and I won't say we have a traditional "physics" program.
We have a medical physics program if that if what you are actually looking for.

If not, don't waste your time applying here for a "real" or, more appropriately, a traditional physics program.

I haven't heard much about yorks physics program either.

I'd also add UWO and the University of Victoria to that list.

Top three I'd say are U of T, Waterloo and McGill. I'm assuming your using ouac, so for Ontario maybe Queen's Eng. Physics (pretty much an a physics degree with engineering or computer electives). And uOttawa and Carleton are not really that great in physics (I'm a Carleton engineering student).

U.O.I.T in Oshawa may not have the long history of some other schools, but its gaining an amazing reputation at an exponential rate, plus its a huge school, modern EVERYTHING and the school is all based around the sciences and engineering (along with the token Psych,law, business)

I've heard that UOIT has a massive dome that can simulate atmospheric pressures and compositions on various planets, is this correct?

its not really a MASSIVE dome but they have a big room for that stuff, they just dumped a tonne of money now into what I heard was a wind tunnel and quite a few labs. The place is expanding faster than you could keep track of haha!
