From: Robin S. Harris, "Victoria in Federation with the University of Toronto", From Cobourg to Toronto: Victoria University in Retrospect, p. 40:

"In 1942, Emmanuel became associated with Knox and Wycliffe Colleges, and with the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity, in the Toronto Graduate School of Theology, a means by which certain courses of a non-denominational nature could be taken in common by the candidates for the Th.M. degree which each institution offered. The Toronto Graduate School of Theology was incorporated legally in 1964, and two years later St Michael's became a fifth member. In the next several years there were discussions with several other theological colleges; these culminated in the incorporation of the Toronto School of Theology in 1970 with two additional members, Regis College and St Augustine's Seminary, and two affiliates, the McMaster Divinity School in Hamilton and Waterloo Lutheran Seminary in Waterloo. From the outset, the Toronto School of Theology co-ordinated and supervised the basic and advanced degree programmes offered by the colleges. The Toronto School of Theology, itself a federation of colleges, entered into affiliation with the University of Toronto in 1978."
