Origins of University Federation in Canada


  • Daniel W. Lang University of Toronto


Abstract: This paper will examine the evolution of university federation in Canada in two periods, one from approximately 1875 to 1925, involving mainly secular instruction, and one beginning in the late 1950s and continuing into the early 21st century, involving mainly theological colleges, in both cases seeking to define different models of federation and affiliation, and the academic and fiscal motivations for each.
