History and Mission

Massey College provides a congenial intellectual environment for the exchange of opinions and ideas. Its members form a multi-disciplinary and diverse community that includes distinguished senior scholars and eminent members of society beyond the academic world.

The Rt. Hon. Vincent Massey, former Governor General of Canada, was one of the founders of the College. The residence, designed by the celebrated architect Ron Thom, was built and furnished by the Massey Foundation and opened in 1963.

It was the intention of the Founders “to bring into being a College to serve a body of graduates limited in number but of high promise in scholarship and qualified to make of worth the fellowship to which they belong. It is the Founders’ prayer that through the fullness of its corporate life and efforts of its members, the College will nourish learning and serve the public good”.
