Cecile Edith Klein (née Efros; born 15 June 1907) is a Canadian supercentenarian whose age is currently considered pending by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). She is the oldest known living person in Canada.


Klein was born on 15 June 1907 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to Polish-born Jewish parents Louis Efros (1881–1950) and Rachel Pearson Efros (1887–1965). She married Israeli-born Erwin Klein (1905–1999) on 5 June 1932, and they were married for 67 years. The couple had three children: Harriet, Arnold, and Louise.
