Living Canadian supercentenarians

Below is a list of the oldest living people from Canada. Those listed as 'verified' have been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group. Those listed as 'pending' have provided at least one document supporting the claimed age but not the three necessary for validation. Those that are 'unverified' have provided no documents to support the age claimed.
