On Sept. 20, 1917, women gained a limited right to vote in federal elections. The Military Voters Act established that women who were British subjects and had close relatives in the armed forces could vote on behalf of their male relatives in federal elections. The right to vote in Federal elections was extended to all women in 1919 pursuant to the Act to confer the Electoral Franchise upon Women.
On May 14, 1967, Canada Post Office issued a stamp to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first law permitting women to vote in federal elections.
