University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

From Wikipedia

Carleton University is a public comprehensive university in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1942 as Carleton College, a private, non-denominational evening college to serve veterans returning from World War II, it was chartered as a university by the provincial government in 1952 through The Carleton University Act. The legislation was amended in 1957 to give the institution its current name. The university moved to its current campus in 1959, expanding rapidly throughout the 1960s as the Ontario government expanded support for post-secondary institutions and sought to increase access to higher education.
