My library has a database, Biography in Context, which offers biographies of famous people and is searchable by various fields including nationality, gender, ethnicity, birth dates, and more. A few of the Canadian women I found by searching there:

Carol Shields, Novelist

LM Montgomery, Novelist

Mary Pickford (Gladys Louise Smith), Actor

Fay Wray, Actor

Sheila Finestone, Legislator

Aimee Semple McPherson, Evangelist

Elizabeth Mann Borgese, Environmentalist

Sheila Egoff, Librarian (yay!)

Jeanne Sauve, Governor general

Maureen Forester, Opera singer

Helen Sawyer Hogg, Astronomer

Kate Fox, Mystic (seriously?)

Molly Kool, Ship captain

Pearl Hart, robber

Louise McKinney, Prohibitionist

Laura Ingersoll Secord, Patriot

I went through and picked out a variety of professions for you. Check and see if your library has this fantastic resource, or take a look at a few of these women and see if any of them are suitable for your assignment.
