Canadian Who's Who is a reference publication containing concise biographical information about 13,000 notable Canadians. It is published annually by Third Sector Publishing with a bright-red binding, distributed by University of Toronto Press, and an online searchable version is also available through a subscription.[1] The online, searchable, electronic version of Canadian Who's Who includes more than 9,000 archived biographies, in addition to the 13,000 biographies found in the 2011 print edition. Every year the publisher invites new individuals to complete questionnaires from which new biographies are compiled. The publisher also gives those already listed in earlier editions an opportunity to update their biographies.

There is no charge, nor is there any obligation, for the inclusion of a biography in the Canadian Who's Who. Biographies are chosen on merit alone. Those listed are selected because of the positions they hold in Canadian society, or because of the contribution they have made to life in Canada. Included are outstanding Canadians from business, academia, politics, sports, the arts and sciences. Entries give date and place of birth, education, family details, career information, memberships, creative works, honours, languages, and awards, together with full addresses.


The most recent edition of Canadian Who's Who (ISBN 978-0-921173-30-4) was edited by Susan Charters and published by Anderson Charters. The research editor was Andrew Cowan Nagora. Copy editing was provided by Sara Davison, Joanne Haskins, Wendy Kirk, Carolyn Mullin, and Jeff Scott.
