Canadian Who's Who is a reference publication containing concise biographical information about 13,000 notable Canadians. It is published and distributed annually by Grey House Publishing Canada with a bright-red binding, 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 11,000 archived biographies, in addition to the 13,000 biographies found in the 2014/2015 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.
