Statues of Great Canadian Women

Statues are an important method of commemorating notable people in history, so we wondered if many Canadian women have been recognized for their accomplishments by the creation of such monuments. We'll be adding information and images about monuments and statues of Canadian women across the country - and welcome any information and photos you want to share!
