It is with great pleasure that we invite you to explore the history of Canada's inhabitants and their culture, thanks to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online. There, you will meet people who played an important role in the formation of what is now Canada.
This phase presents persons who died between the years 1000 and 1930 or whose last known date of activity falls within these years. We are certain that this means of consulting the Dictionary of Canadian Biography/Dictionnaire biographique du Canada (DCB/DBC), a major research and publishing project launched by the University of Toronto and the Université Laval in 1959, will provide easier access to the published biographies and the information that interests you.
Initially hosted by Library and Archives Canada, as of 1 September 2011, the website is hosted by the DCB/DBC.
On behalf of the two teams of the DCB/DBC, we wish you an efficient and pleasant consultation.
Directeur général adjoint
