What are my chances of getting into top Canadian universities for CS major

Hi all, my son is a Canadian citizen studying his high school in Georgia, USA. He is currently a junior. He has studied in Canada until 7th grade. Considering the high cost of universities in the U.S. for international students, we are considering Canadian universities for his undergrad degree in CS(Intended major).I am looking for some reach, target and safety schools in Canada that offer a good/reputable academic program in Computer Science. Any leads are highly appreciated! He is a strong student with all A’s except one B (87) in first semester of his sophomore year. But he is not so strong on extracurriculars. Here are the stats:

GPA 3.94(u/w) and 4.2 (w)
(Our school doesn’t weigh honors classes and offers AP’s in junior and senior grades only)
99th percentile on PSAT
1510 on SAT (superscore) : 800 on Math and 710 on English; 1470 on one SAT test (he plans to retake the test and do better on it)
6 Honors classes in 9th and 10th (including Chemistry, Biology, Algebra, Geometry, French and English)
8 AP’s ( AP Physics 1 and 2, AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP CAlculus BC, AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science A and AP Psychology)

ECA:
Plays soccer (club sport)
Honors clubs at school
Volunteers at library

Kindly share your views on if targeting top universities like Uof T, UBC, McGill, Waterloo etc. will be realistic or what other universities would you suggest as target and safety schools. Any insights will be really helpful!! Thanks in advance.
