About Us

Saint Paul University, in Ottawa, is a Catholic and bilingual institution entrusted for more than a century and a half to the Congregation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Endowed with civil (1866) and pontifical (1889) charters, Saint Paul University has been federated with the University of Ottawa since 1965.

As a Catholic institution, Saint Paul University is dedicated primarily to an understanding and integration of Christian faith and life, and to promoting the values of Christian humanism. It aims to pursue this in a spirit of ecumenical openness and with a critical awareness of the forms of Christian life already existing or now emerging within modern cultures and societies.

As a bilingual institution, Saint Paul University wishes to contribute to the mutual understanding and enrichment of the English- and French-speaking communities, while remaining attentive to the cultural diversity of the country.

As a centre of higher learning, Saint Paul University intends to promote excellence in teaching, research, and professional formation as part of the local, national and international academic community. It endeavors as well to serve diverse Christian communities and socio-cultural organizations and, in collaboration with them, to respond to the challenges presently confronting Church and society.

Thus, by participating in the evangelizing mission of Christ, Saint Paul University is committed to contributing creatively to the humanization of society.
