Note: this list currently only includes acts and statutes for larger universities that are available online (all are public institutions). It is organized by province since the legislation is provincial (except for some very old royal charters) and in some instances there is legislation for all universities in a province.  (The Association of Universities and Colleges in Canada has a comprehensive list of Canadian universities.)
