National Post (Latest Edition) - - DIVERSIONS -

March 14, 1916 — Saskatchewan ex­tended the right to vote and hold pro­vin­cial of­fice to women, the sec­ond prov­ince to do so af­ter Man­i­toba. In fol­low­ing year, the rest of the prov­inces, as well as Ot­tawa, did the same. Québec be­came the last prov­ince to ap­prove women’s suf­frage in 1940. At the time, suf­frage wasn’t for all women - many groups were barred from vot­ing based on their eth­nic­ity.
