Persons Day 2017

October 18, 2017 in Canada

Persons Day is celebrated on October 18, 2017. Persons Day is an annual celebration in Canada. The day commemorates the case of Edwards v. Canada (Attorney General), more commonly known as The Persons Case - a famous Canadian constitutional case decided on October 18, 1929 by the Judicial Committee of the Imperial Privy Council, at that time the court of last resort for Canada, which held that women were eligible to sit in the Canadian Senate. While not a civic holiday, several women's groups across Canada make significant note of the day, including The Women's Legal Education and Action Fund and The Canadian Voters Congress.
