Miss Universe Canada 2012 was a beauty pageant contest held at St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto, Ontario.

Controversy[edit]

The 2012 contest was accused of transphobia after disqualifying a transgender contestant, Jenna Talackova (Jana Talačková), for not being a "naturally born female". A spokesperson from Miss Universe Canada released a statement saying she was disqualified because on her entry form she stated she was born a female, which was not the case. Eventually, Talackova was let back into the competition.[1] On 9 April 2012, Talackova confirmed on The View that she will compete for the Miss Universe Canada title on 19 May.[2]

Sahar Biniaz[edit]

Sahar Biniaz, a 26-year-old from Vancouver, British Columbia was crowned Miss Universe Canada 2012. She competed against 61 other contestants to take the title. She was supposed to represent Canada in the Miss Universe 2012 competition. Unfortunately, Sahar was unable to make it to the Miss Universe 2012 competition due to a foot injury and 1st Runner Up, Adwoa Yamoah went to Las Vegas to represent Canada in her place. She is still Miss Universe Canada 2012 before and after Miss Universe Pageant. She crowned her successor Riza Santos at Miss Universe Canada 2013.
