I doubt U will find many easily.

UWO is not popular in SG, ppl go there thru NUS for exchange. each yr maybe U find 1-2 exchange students from SG.
yeah figured that out. i meant like they have studied there and all. how about queens and Mcgill

i don't know the real numbers but ubc, sfu, UofT, Mcgill does have more Sporeans. Even when i say more the numbers is less than 50. More likely around 10 to 30.

also few!

why are U so concern with singaporean population there? depending on the major u choose I would be concern with acceptance.

top Canadian uni are too friendly with ppl with low GPA. if U plan on going to the popular major eg Biz/Engineering your GPA got be high at ~3.7.

if U plan on Waterloo's CS programs expect they demand for very high GPA too. They are known as MIT of Canada for a good reason.
