While most provinces have at least one program, some of the smaller provinces do not have a post-secondary institution that offers an undergraduate major or minor in the field of medieval studies (although one can find classes related to medieval history or literature in most universities). The University of Toronto is considered one of the most important institutions for medievalists in North America.
