1884 - Widows and unmarried women can vote in Ontario municipal elections

 

The right to vote in Ontario municipal elections was extended to widows and unmarried Canadian women in 1884, after the efforts of the Toronto Women's Literary Club, which later became the Canadian Women's Suffrage Club. This right to vote was for enfranchised Canadian women only, and did not extend to Aboriginal people of Canada.

 

The first Ontario suffragists were a cohort of predominantly White, Anglo-Protestant, educated women led by Dr. Emily Stowe (1831–1903) and later her daughter, Dr. Augusta Stowe-Gullen (1857–1943).  - Canadian Encyclopedia
