The passenger manifest for Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 includes years of birth; the oldest Canadian was born in 1945, the youngest in 2018. The victims had roots across the country. Many were believed to be Iranian-Canadian students returning to school after the winter break. There were also professors, dentists, doctors, a software engineer and a real-estate agent.

Flight 752 crashed Wednesday in Tehran, killing all 176 on board. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday evidence suggested “the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.” An Iranian military statement later admitted the plane was unintentionally shot down.

At least 57 passengers had boarded the plane with Canadian passports while a total of 138 were connecting through Kyiv to Canada.

The Globe and Mail is working to learn more about those who died aboard Flight 752. Here is what we know so far about some of the victims. We will update with more details as we continue to report on this story.

To provide information about victims please contact Deputy National Editor Nicole MacIntyre nmacintyre@globeandmail.com.
