Her father owned Martin's Foods, a grocery store chain.

Though her success in Canadian television and theatre and familial ties to Canada might lead the public to assume she is Canadian, Martin is an American citizen. Her two sons have dual Canadian-American status due to their father's Canadian cititzenship.
