Administrative history

In 1849, the College of Bytown was incorporated by the United-Canada Parliament, thereby creating the Corporation of the College of Bytown which became the Corporation of the College of Ottawa in 1861. The Corporation underwent further change in 1866 with the granting of a university charter to the College. Following the publication in 1931 of the apostolic constitution Deus Scientarum Dominus, which reorganized university-level catholic instruction, the University had the College of Bytown Act superseded by the University of Ottawa of 1933. The last meeting of the Corporation of the College of Ottawa took place in September of 1933.
