Dalhousie University

Founded in 1818, Dalhousie University is comprised of three campuses in Halifax and one in Truro – home of the Faculty of Agriculture. Faculties and units support a student population of over 19,000 drawn from across Canada and more than 115 different countries.

Since Mr. Killam was originally from Yarmouth and had many business interests in his home province, Dalhousie University was a logical choice to receive Killam funds (and was the largest single recipient).

Dalhousie’s researchers currently include six Canada Council Killam Prize winners (3 in Natural Sciences, 2 in Humanities and 1 in Engineering) and nine Canada Council Killam Research Fellowship recipients.
