A Short History of Queen's
Queen's was established by Royal Charter of Queen Victoria in 1841, twenty-six years before Canadian Confederation. Classes were first held in 1842. The university is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory.
As the earliest degree-granting institution in the United Provinces of Canada, Queen's has reflected and helped shape Canadian values and policies, educating many of the country's most notable political and cultural figures.
