The Dictionary of Canadian Biography is a continuing project of the University of Toronto Press. This is an index of those who were Islanders or those with a strong connection to the Island who may be found in the pages of the current 14 volumes of the series. The first volume was published in 1966 and additional volumes will follow. While the books are costly, you will find copies in major libraries.

The Dictionary of Canadian Biography is now online thanks to the National Archives of Canada. It may be searched and viewed at: http://www.biographi.ca/index2.html
