This version of The Canadian Encyclopedia, released in enhanced digital interactive form in October 2013, represents the latest incarnation of a project with a unique history. Since the first edition arrived in 1985, Canadians have held a claim few others can make: we have our own national encyclopedia. The idea of covering all branches of knowledge or aspects of a subject in one body of work dates back to 1728 in England. However, a bilingual national edition produced by, for and about the people of a single country, charting its events, culture, history and landscape, remains rare.
Welcome 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. Its purpose was and is to provide a reference work of Canadian biography to “compete with or even surpass works of a similar character produced elsewhere.” We invite you to visit us frequently to view the new biographies that we post online each week, as well as updated biographies. And we suggest that you explore the thematic groups of biographies we have prepared for you.
