Royal Military College of Canada
The Royal Military College of Canada (French: Collège militaire royal du Canada), commonly abbreviated in English as RMC, is the military college of the Canadian Armed Forces and, since 1959, a degree-granting university training military officers. RMC was established in 1874 and conducted its first classes on June 1, 1876. It is the only federal institution in Canada with degree-granting powers. The Government of Ontario empowered the college to confer degrees in arts, science, and engineering through The Royal Military College of Canada Degrees Act, 1959. Programs are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, both on campus as well as through the college's distance learning programme via the Division of Continuing Studies.

Located on Point Frederick, a 41-hectare (101-acre) peninsula in Kingston, Ontario, the college is a mix of historic buildings and more modern academic, athletic, and dormitory facilities. Officer cadets of the Royal Military College of Canada are trained in what are known as the "four pillars" of academics, officership, athletics, and bilingualism.
