Waterloo Lutheran University became Wilfrid Laurier University, one of Ontario's provincially-assisted universities, after Bill 178 was given royal assent by Lieutenant Governor W. Ross Macdonald who was chancellor of the university from 1964 to 1972.

Wilfrid Laurier University is located in Waterloo, Ontario. It began in 1911 as the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada. In 1924 Waterloo College was established, providing courses in post-secondary education. In 1960 Waterloo College became Waterloo Lutheran University, and in 1973 changed its name to Wilfrid Laurier University. Laurier Brantford opened in 1999.
