The goal of the Managed Profiles Team is to formulate policy regarding the adoption, management and protection of profiles by the Canada Project, to ensure those profiles are worked on to a high standard and connected to the global tree. Only the Managed Profiles Team should apply the template: {{Canada}} which appears on Profiles as
Canadian Flag
... ... ... is managed by the Canada Project.

To be considered for inclusion in the project, an individual should have played an important role in the creation and evolution of Canada, had a significant impact on Canadian life or whose names have become synonymous with Canada. These include not only individuals like the Prime Ministers, Provincial Governors and Fathers of Confederation, but also other notable individuals whose names have become synonymous with Canada. Others will be considered on a case by case basis. Resources that we use include Wikipedia, Dictionary of Canadian Biography/Dictionnaire biographique du Canada and The Canadian Encyclopedia

If you want to suggest that a Profile needs to be included, see #Suggest Profiles for Inclusion for how to do that.

Guidelines for Writing Profiles

  1. Profiles should have as complete a Biography as the available information allows.
    1. Birth, death and marriage should be at the beginning of the Biography.
    2. The life events that show that the person is notable should also be included
  2. All events/facts given in a Biography should have an inline source citation.
    1. Primary documents are preferred.
    2. High quality secondary sources such as the Canadian Encyclopedia, Dictionary of Canadian Biography, and Wikipedia are acceptable.
    3. Personal trees on Ancestry, FamilySearch, MyHeritage, etc. should not be cited as sources but can be placed in a == Research Notes == section
  3. When known, please add children and spouses to the profile.
  4. Profiles are welcome in either English or French
    1. If you are bilingual, please make an attempt at a bilingual profile
  5. be very careful with plagiarism and observe the WikiTree rule of not copy and paste from Wikipedia.

Task List

  • Create a working spreadsheet of profiles to be worked on to be shared out amongst the team
  • Begin working on those profiles, ensuring that the project has some "flagship" profiles to share with the rest of the WikiTree community
