Yes. And I need to thank YOU because your question sent me on a search for this and I found some really interesting information. This apparently dates back to English Common Law. If you have time, check this out:

That is true. They give the men, John Doe. It is the famous story of a woman who was unnamed and we eventually found her name. So, we call everyone Jane or John Doe

In America and Canada, yes. It's the female equivalent of John Doe.
