Renison University College is a public college with a strong affiliation with the Anglican Church of Canada. It is located in Waterloo, Ontario and is affiliated with the University of Waterloo. Renison College was incorporated on January 14, 1959, by letters patent of the Province of Ontario.
The College was named in memory of The Most Reverend Robert John Renison, 1875-1957, a former Metropolitan of Ontario and Archbishop of the Anglican diocese of Moosonee. In July 2008, it gained permission to expand its name to Renison University College, reflecting its close status to the University of Waterloo.
