This chapter discusses the history of human paleopathology in Canada, which is closely associated with the history of physical anthropology in the country. This history can be traced to the late nineteenth century, but also to the research orientation and tutorial influence of two major institutions, the University of Toronto and the National Museum of Canada, now the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec. It is largely due to the efforts of individuals associated with those institutions that the science developed and later flourished and evolved. The chapter is divided into three sections covering, respectively, the early years, the pivotal 1960s, and the 1970s and beyond.
