The top five Psychology programs in Canada haven't changed since last year, according to Maclean's 2020 rankings — but there are few new entrants to the broader list. Concordia, Manitoba, and Lethbridge have all made it into the top 20, and both Simon Fraser and York University have cracked the top ten.

Maclean's rankings are based on the program's reputation, research reputation, and a measure of the program's publications and citations. Check out the rankings for 2020:
