Famous Canadians

Canada is a country of many great achievers, including some who are internationally famous. However, since Canada has a small population and is sometimes overlooked, not everyone realises that these achievers are Canadians!

Inspired by this, I have compiled a list of famous Canadians. To make the list people have to (a) have lived a significant portion of their life in Canada; and (b) be sufficiently famous that a significant percentage of people in at least one country besides Canada have heard of them or their work.

Here, then, is the list (in alphabetical order). I welcome comments, corrections, and suggestions for additions; please e-mail me.
