Wanda Elosie Robson, born between 1927 and 1928, is a Nova Scotian activist and author originally from Halifax. She is best known as being the younger sister of Viola Desmond, an activist against racial segregation and businesswoman. In 2004, Robson graduated from Cape Breton University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Robson has led an awareness campaign for her sister's activism, which has lead to an official apology from the Nova Scotia government in 2010. In 2016, Robson was part of the announcement that Desmond was to be featured on the re-designed Canadian $10 bill, which was revealed official in Halifax in 2018.
