No one is going to suggest universities for you. You must do your research and come up with a list of universities you're interested in and people will weigh in on it based on their opinions.
It's up to you to evaluate those opinions and decide.
Also, I'm not a huge fan of the "ambitious", "moderate" and "safe" tags that people apply to the process. Moreover, such a concept doesn't really apply in Canada as far as I know. If you're interested in a thesis program, it depends more on your interest aligning with the Professor's research and the availability of funds and his willingness to fund you. Read up on the Canadian thread and see what you can infer.

While I don't do profile evaluations, I would like to chime in with a word. I hope you realize that there's a difference between an MSc and a Diploma. I mean, a pretty huge difference. An MSc is mostly a degree by research which will involve a detailed thesis. Think about whether you really want to do a thesis and get into research or not. If your sole purpose is to find a job and develop more industry relevant skills, it might also be worth your time to check out an MEng degree.
Again, different universities may use different terminologies, but an MSc degree involved a huge, detailed and independent thesis and this usually comes down to the Professor's funding. I don't know too much about Canada, but since you want to do a co-op, Waterloo does have the best co-op program as far as I know. Maybe someone else on this board can give you more information.
Grades do matter a lot to Canadian Universities. So your percentage might be a bit low.

Everything that @[carborundum] said is also true. I hope you know the difference between MSc and a Diploma.
