Women in the Upper Canadian Criminal Justice System, a talk at the Central Library

While women were not legal persons in Upper Canada, they could still be tried and convicted of a wide range of criminal offences, give evidence, testify during trials and could be victimized by crime.

Author and researcher Janice Nickerson will use a series of case studies to tell the stories of Upper Canadian women whose lives intersected the legal system.

Admission: $5.00 per person.

Please purchase your ticket at the Central Library’s Full Service Desk as space is limited. For those who cannot purchase their tickets in advance, please pre-register by calling 905-884-9288, X 321
