When were Canadian women seen as persons and when did they have the right to vote?

  • History -

    The first part depends upon who does the "seeing", and how you define "being seen as a person".

    As for your second question, all female citizens aged 21 and over became eligible to vote in federal Canadian elections on 24 May 1918, regardless of whether they had yet attained that right in provincial elections. The right of women to vote, and to hold office, varied from province to province. For quite a long time, it also depended upon whether they owned property, were married, widowed or spinsters, and whether they were in the Armed Forces.
