The University of Waterloo is recognized as best CS/Math school in Canada.  Given its widely known reputation I would assume it should figure prominently on a resume, even abroad.  I have worked with several graduates from this program and they were all quite gifted engineers and developers.

The Univeristy of Toronto is well respected as well.  I work for a firm in Toronto and we hire talent from U of T almost exclusively.  We have had great success with thier students.  Very well rounded candidates for the most part.

Generally the top three Canadian schools for CS are:
Waterloo
Toronto
Queen's
