Over 550 brief "bios" of Canadian women are included in this birthday site!!
This list is growing all the time. My goal is to have at least one name for each day of the year! There are now only 11 days left without any names! (Site last updated Dec 2011) The research continues!
I have gone through the Canadian Encyclopedia, consulted the Canadian Who's Who, searched the internet, watched the newspaper and checked out biographical books from the local library! I have worked my way through the 15 volumes of the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and consulted the single volume of the Macmillan Dictionary of Canadian Biography (Toronto, 1978).
Names may not be included simply because there is no record of a birthday, as in the case of some of our early notable women. Other times, especially when there are already several names for a certain date, I choose not to include yet another name. You might be surprised at how many do not have known birthdates or by how many are born on the same day as several other women of achievement!
I would like to thank all those who have taken time to contact me and tell me about errors that they have spotted. I am my own worst editor! I really do appreciate it when people do spot errors so that I may make corrections. I do not wish to provide false information.
Do you have any nominations of famous Canadian Women's Birthdays or can you fill in a date?
your suggestions or leave me a message in my guest book. Remember to include
the birth date! Your nominations
should have been born in or moved to Canada and should be noteworthy or
I have had great enjoyment doing the research for this web page. I hope that you have fun during your visit!!!
