Education

Queen's University at Kingston (commonly shortened to Queen's University or Queen's) is a public research university located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Founded on 16 October 1841, the university predated the founding of Canada by 26 years. Queen's holds more than 1,400 hectares (3,500 acres) of land throughout Ontario and owns Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England. Queen's is organized into ten undergraduate, graduate and professional faculties and schools. The Church of Scotland established Queen's College in 1841 with a royal charter from Queen Victoria. The first classes, intended to prepare students for the ministry, were held 7 March 1842 with 13 students and two professors. Queen's was the first university west of the maritime provinces to admit women, and to form a student government. In 1883, a women's college for medical education affiliated with Queen's University. In 1888, Queen's University began offering extension courses, becoming the first Canadian university to do so. In 1912, Queen's secularized and changed to its present legal name.

OTPP’s investments are well-diversified across a mix of public and private Canadian and non-Canadian equities, inflation-sensitive investments, fixed-income securities and real assets (real estate and infrastructure). An eleven-member board, appointed by the OTF and the Ontario government, oversees the administration of the pension plan and reports on its funding status. The firm's internally managed active equity investments are selected using bottom-up analysis to identify and invest in undervalued stocks. The majority of their investments in public companies are managed internally. They invest in commodities as a hedge against the cost of paying inflation-protected pensions. OTPP invests mainly through swap agreements linked to the S&P GSCI Total Return Index. The index is heavily-weighted towards oil and gas. They also invest in real assets such as real estate, infrastructure and timberland to generate returns that are linked to changes in inflation and act as a hedge against the cost of paying pensions.
