Canadian Actresses are female actors from Canada, period. But these things are never easily defined. As with European nations like the United Kingdom without prefixes for minorities, Canadian actresses of color carry the category of their heritage as well. There are cases where an actor is born in Canada and grows up to go work in Hollywood and sometimes makes the United States her home and even marries an American and raise American children, in this case, you can call her a Canadian-American but not us, we still enter her here as Canadian Actresses. Also, there are cases where an American star comes to Vancouver or Ontario and makes this place her home and even get Canadian citizenship. In this case, we refer to this actress as Canadian and enter her profile in Canadian Actresses. It doesn’t make sense referring to Canadian-Americans and American-Canadians all as Canadians, but it is what it is. We own this blog and we do what we do.
