Not too easy. Not too difficult.
There is a reason why this university is top three in Canada and top five in North America. This is a research based university, so that is something to keep in mind when applying. Compared to my experience at community college and taking honors classes at high school, the academics are much more challenging.
However, the quality of learning is spectacular. The professors are very knowledgeable and are professionals in their field of expertise. Even when I find work difficult at times, I always look forward to lectures and having discussions with my professors.

Advice for students:
I've noticed that students exclusively from the USA (who do not have dual citizenship), find the academics much more challenging and time consuming. It isn't a bad thing, but it is definitely something one has to get used to and even readjust their grade standards too.
