1975 Macdonald Lassies Championship

The 1975 Canadian Ladies Curling Championship, known as the Macdonald Lassie for sponsorship reasons, Canada's national women's curling championship was held February 23-28, 1975 in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Lee Tobin's Montreal-area rink won Quebec's first (and to date only) Canadian women's championship title, after defeating Saskatchewan's Marj Mitchell in a playoff after finishing the round robin with identical records. It was only the second time a team from Eastern Canada had won up to that point.
