On This Day

September 20, 1917

The Parliament of Canada passes legislation giving some women the right to vote in federal elections.

This right is limited to women who are British subjects; 21 years of age or older; and the wife, widow, mother, sister or daughter of any person, male or female, living or dead, who had served in the military. Another law grants the right to vote to some 2,000 military nurses, known as “Bluebirds,” stationed in Europe.

After the 1917 election, the government will extend this right to all non-Indigenous Canadians who are British subjects and 21 years of age or older.
