WHAT IS THIS SITE: The aim of this site is to list all persons executed in Canada. Names of most persons executed under Canadian jurisdiction between 1867 and 1962 plus many others before Confederation have been found. We have entered most of the names from our database. Currently we are adding new info from Quebec and Nova Scotia.
WHY WOULD YOU USE THIS: There is information here that may be of interest to researchers such as genealogists, local historians, crime buffs, etc. Listed here are the names of 1011 prisoners executed and info such as their crime and victims. Through 400 years of Canadian history people from teenagers to the elderly were put to death for crimes ranging from theft of items such as pennies and barrels of liquor to mass murder.
WHAT IS NOT HERE: This site does not contain graphic depictions of capital punishment. This site is not a forum for opinions on "For" or "Against" the death penalty.
