It is with great pride that we welcome you to the online version of the Dictionary of Canadian Biography/Dictionnaire biographique du Canada (DCB/DBC), a major research and publishing project of the University of Toronto and the Université Laval that was launched in 1959. From 2003 until 2011, when our website was hosted by Library and Archives Canada, readers visited in ever-increasing numbers, a most welcome recognition of our success. The website, for which we now have exclusive responsibility, has been extensively improved. We invite you to visit us frequently to view the new biographies that we will be posting online on a weekly basis, as well as updated biographies. And we suggest that you explore the thematic groups of biographies we have prepared for you.
Many of you are already in touch by e-mail. Now you can also communicate via popular social networks. Please give us your comments and impressions – we will read them with interest. As well, you will find information on various developments and activities by checking out “DCB/DBC News” in the sidebar at left.
Welcome to our website, where thousands of individuals await you, each of whom, in his or her own way, has contributed to building Canada.
