The goal of the Canada project is to add and improve profiles of people born in Canada and related to Canadian history. Project members contribute in a variety of ways, through working on family groupings, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, merging duplicates and ensuring that the profiles reach the best standard possible. They also offer assistance to others working on Canadian profiles wherever possible.


The Canada Project organises itself into teams. On joining the project you will have the opportunity to contribute to one or more of these teams:

Geographical Teams

Atlantic Canada Team

The Atlantic Canada Team includes the four sub teams and projects of New Brunswick Project, Prince Edward Island Team, Nova Scotia Project and Newfoundland and Labrador Project

Ontario Project Team

The Ontario Project is a sub-project of the Canada Project. The team focuses on all profiles relating to the province of Ontario.

Quebec Team

Other Teams

Managed Profiles Team

The Managed Profiles Team are a group of skilled individuals who collaborate on profiles managed and protected by the Canada Project.
