Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, who established Canadian sovereignty across the Arctic Archipelago; Frederick G. Banting, the co-discoverer of insulin; Alice E. Wilson, the country’s first woman geologist; Louie Kamookak, a leading Inuit historian and expert on the lost Franklin Expedition; and Roberta Bondar, the first Canadian woman to go to space.
