Hamilton, ON, Nov. 4, 2004 McMaster University in Hamilton, ON has earned the designation Canadian Research University of the Year based on its ability to attract and capitalize on research income.

The Research University of the Year was announced today by Research Inforsource Inc. when it released its annual Top 50 Research Universities report.
