We sure do like the Royal Family here in Canada, and Queen’s University is just more proof of that
obsession admiration. The school was established by a Royal Charter of Queen Victoria in 1841—way back before Canada was even “Canada.”
Queen’s is located in Kinston, ON, a small university town that we hear is quite lovely. The city is also steeped in history, having many museums and being the final resting place for Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald.
Queen’s itself is known internationally as a great school and is proud of its 24-hour learning environment. This school was also the first in Canada to establish a student government.
