Canadian Society of Medievalists (French: Société canadienne des médiévistes) is a Canadian learned society of medievalists "dedicated to promoting excellence in research for all aspects of medieval studies".[1]

In addition to its biannual newsletter, Scrinium, the society publishes Florilegium (journal), which is "devoted to the ancient and medieval cultures of Europe, North Africa, and the Near East".[2] It holds an annual conference together with other scholarly groups as part of the Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (the "Learneds"), and develops and collaborates on scholarly projects with the international network of medievalists, CARMEN[3] (the Co-operative for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network).[4]

The society's first president was Margaret Wade Labarge, in 1993.
