I think the "best" ones would be U of T, McGill, UBC, Western and WLU....BUT....for me it depends completely on the teacher, I know that WLU doesn't have the piano department that it used to have.  

I chose my school based on who I would be studying with, and the opportunities that I would have.  I honestly believe that if you have talent a school will do whatever they can to accomodate you, including sending you to other Universities for lessons, etc.  And a smaller school can really showcase your talent.  I don't know, I could be wrong, but it has been working VERY well for me.  Good luck with your decision.

I'm a bit biased, I think U of T has great faculty members.  And I heard they have a really good jazz programme, that is if you are planning to specialize in jazz.
