Categories: Canada | Women's Suffrage Movements


The suffrage movement started in Canada in 1876 with the creation of the Toronto Women’s Literacy Club (WLC). This group was established by the first female doctor in Canada, Emily Howard Stowe. It focused on social problems. The group later became the Women’s Suffrage Society (WSS) in 1883. The WSS sought to expand the movement into other Canadian provinces and to rally the forces of other suffragist groups
