about

The Dictionary of Canadian Biography provides authoritative biographical information about significant figures of Canada's past, including both detailed arcticles on Canada's major historical figures, and short articles on minor personages who have hitherto found no place in reference works or general histories. The DCB was founded through the benefaction of the late James Nicholson, who bequeathed the residue of his estate as a permanent endowment for a Canadian biographical dictionary. The French-language edition, Dictionnaire biographique du Canada, is published simultaneously by Les Presses de l'universite Laval.

Ramsay Cook is a professor emeritus in the Department of History at York University and the former general editor of The Dictionary of Canadian Biography. Jean Hamelin is a former Professor of History at Université Laval. He received the Governor General's Award for his Histoire du catholicisme québecois.

The Dictionary of Canadian Biography began publication in 1966 and has been praised by general readers and scholars alike for its broad inclusiveness, readability and scholarship.
