The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kingston (Latin: Archidioecesis Kingstoniensis/Regiopolitanus) is a Roman Catholic archdiocese in Canada that includes part of the Province of Ontario and includes the suffragan dioceses of Alexandria-Cornwall, Peterborough, and Sault Sainte Marie.

The Diocese of Kingston was established 27 January 1826 as a suffrigan diocese of the Archdiocese of Quebec and elevated to an archdiocese 28 December 1889.[1] Prior to 1841 when the Diocese of Toronto was created, the diocese included areas that are now part of the Dioceses of Hamilton, London, Saint Catharines, Thunder Bay and Toronto.[2]

As of 2004, the archdiocese contains 52 parishes, 79 active diocesan priests, 7 religious priests, and 120,000 Catholics. It also has 165 Women Religious, 11 Religious Brothers, and 17 permanent deacons.[3]
