More about Université Laval
Located in the heart of Quebec's historic capital city, Université Laval is one of Canada's leading universities. Among the top ten Canadian universities in terms of research, it has received more than 150 million dollars in external funds in year 2000 for research and international cooperation.

Université Laval traces its origins back to 1663, when Monseigneur François de Laval, the first bishop of New France, founded the Séminaire de Québec with the authorization of the King of France, Louis XIV. A Royal Charter creating the Université Laval was granted to the Séminaire de Québec by Queen Victoria in 1852. A few years later, in 1878, the Université Laval opened a second campus in Montreal to offer higher education teaching in this city . Université Laval's "Montreal branch" became the Université de Montréal in 1920. As Canada's first university, Université Laval was the very first institution in North America to offer higher education in French. Hence, it is the source of all French-speaking higher education on our continent.
