I reckon there's more 1911-born people in Canada, as it's hard to believe there's a ten-month gap with no one in it!

I've been trying to find new updates for Nicholas Mascitelli (b. 5 Jun 1911) for over a year now, but no luck so far. I know the names of several of his relatives from the information published in his sisters' obituaries, so hopefully I'll be able to find some contacts. Given that his two centenarian sisters had public obituaries, it seems likely his family would've made one for him as well if he did pass away, so I'm guessing he's still alive.

Thanks for the list, Ale. Would you have a source for Mrs Skuce's 110th birthday?

source for her 107th birthday:

https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/107-year-old-marks-birthday-with-sister-whos-105-505604922.html?msclkid=6cebdd81a9bf11ec8491978862900d98

She was confirmed alive more recently but I don't remember the date and I don't have the source. She is still listed in https://gerontology.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_oldest_living_people_in_Canada?msclkid=ed73c0f5a9bf11ec9a75e5b9daab8aa5 but we can remove her if you prefer. I am not sure if she is a limbo case.

2. Anonymous (British Columbia) (b. 4 July 1910), 111 y.o.

An Anonymous woman from British Columbia turned 112 and is currently the second oldest known living person in Canada. (Her name is known, but if it's about privacy, then ok)

100th birthday...

There are also reports of 109th and 110th birthdays...

112th birthday...

112th birthday...

Has her family ever actually requested anonymity for her, though? It seems like all they did was request the removal of false information from her Gerontology Wiki page, unless I'm misremembering.

I'm asking this because it doesn't seem like this woman has ever wanted to be anonymous herself, since she was even interviewed for a documentary a few years ago.

@heatwave116 Yes, that's where the suggestion for Anonymity came from In the comments, a family member said to remove the references that lead to her family, it does not mean that he said that the name should not be visible. Obviously it's best if she remains Anonymous until further notice...

I really can't understand how you can expect to remain anonymous when you have willingly been reported on in several articles that are publicly available.

The family member also said this:

Please remove her photos and change name to "Anonymous"

I don't think she herself is wanting anonymity, it was the family member who posted on the GW. But what you said is true nonetheless.

3 of the 5 oldest living Canadians are immigrants, and the remaining two who were born in Canada had immigrant parents (Reuben's parents were Ukrainian, and Mabel's were Chinese).
