General list[edit]

Canadian politicians connected to the Mennonites[edit]

Note: Several Canadian political figures have a Mennonite background. This might be more common in Canada than in most nations. This is most true in the case of Manitoba and so politicians from other provinces will be designated as such. Hence the explanation for this slightly unusual subdivision. As this more concerns "connected to" not all the names here stayed committed to Mennonitism.

People of Mennonite ancestry or background[edit]

This is mostly people whose Mennonite ancestry or upbringing is important to them, but who are not currently Mennonite. In some cases names listed here include people whose current status as Mennonites is undetermined.

People incorrectly identified as Mennonite[edit]
