Although it might surprise some people, Canada has been a leader in technological discoveries since the 1800s. Alexander Graham Bell registered the patent for the telephone in the Great White North, and Windsor, which is an innovation hub today, was the birthplace of Blackberry. These are the top universities in the country for future tech talent.
