The University was founded as Bishop's College in 1843 under the sponsorship of the Right Reverend G.J. Mountain, the Anglican Bishop of Quebec, with the assistance of a group of clergy and layman from the Eastern Townships. In 1853 Bishop's received a royal charter granting it the right to confer degrees. Bishop's remained under the aegis of the Church of England until 1947 when the Corporation of the University was reconstituted as a nondenominational body. Historical Timeline
