Ryerson Polytechnical Institute

Named after the Reverend Egerton Ryerson, founder of the province's education system, the Ryerson Institute of Technology was established in 1948 to provide technological education for post-secondary students. It rapidly became a leading centre for technical education in Ontario and in 1971 was given degree-granting status.
