Default History of Canadian voice acting

Sorry if there's already a thread for this, but does anyone have a comprehensive history of the Canadian voice acting pools? (Both Vancouver and Toronto.)

I know that Vancouver voice acting has been around since at least the late eighties, with shows like Captain N: The Game Master. Some still-active Vancouver-based actors such as Blu Mankuma, Richard Newman, and Doc Harris were born in the forties, suggesting they've been acting for a while, presumably originally in live-action and radio work in the seventies. Do we know the earliest animated anything to be recorded in Vancouver?

I know Toronto-based voice acting has been around even longer, since at least the early sixties, judging by the early Rankin-Bass stuff. I know the early Toronto voice actors like Billie Mae Richards, Paul Soles, and Larry D. Mann started out in radio. Do we know the earliest animated anything to be recorded in Toronto?
