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 perhaps most true in the case of Manitoba, though Saskatchewan and British Columbia also have significant Mennonites in politics. As this more concerns "connected to" this may include people who did not stay committed to the Mennonites.

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]
