Persons Day in Canada

October 18 is Persons Day in Canada!

It marks the day in 1929 when the historic decision to include women in the legal definition of “persons” was handed down by Canada’s highest court of appeal. This gave women the right to be appointed to the Senate of Canada and paved the way for women’s increased participation in public and political life.

Each year, the Governor General’s Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case are awarded in the fall as part of Canada’s Persons Day celebrations.
