Women in Canada obtained the right to vote in a sporadic fashion. Federal authorities granted them the franchise in 1918, more than two years after the women of Manitoba became the first to vote at the provincial level in 1916. Québec women were denied the provincial vote until 1940. Indigenous women were not enfranchised federally until 1960. Source: The Canadian Encyclopedia - womens-suffrage.
