How To Participate

Are you interested in the Canada Project?


The goal of the Canada project is to add and improve profiles of Canadians and people 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.

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. These profiles may be of notable Canadians, gateway ancestors, or those which might be considered contentious. They seek to raise the standard of these profiles to the highest level possible through research, connecting to the global tree, and through the writing of biographies.

Connectors Team

The Connectors Team is focused on connecting all the loose branches in our Canadian tree. This team will also tackle the Needs Profiles Created category.

Trans Canada Trail Team

The trail uses existing orphaned profiles associated with Canada, which serves two purposes. It gives Travellers the freedom they need to practice and make mistakes, and it helps improve the quality of profiles within the project's scope.

Categories Team

The Categories Team are a group of individuals familiar with Canadian locations, topics and WikiTree Categorization. They work closely with the Categorization Project. The main goal for this team is to establish and maintain an accurate category structure for the Project. Please direct your Canadian category questions to this team.
