Monarchy in Canada
This year marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Queen of Canada. Diamond Jubilee events are taking place across the country, and Canadians of all ages are invited to take part in the many celebrations. The celebrations will honour and thank Her Majesty for her service.
The Canadian Crown is one of our major national institutions and symbols. See how it has evolved over time and grown with the country as a uniquely Canadian institution, as well as the significant role it plays in the daily life of Canada today.
In 2012, Canadians welcome His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall in this special year when we celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen. Check out the 2012 Royal Tour itinerary, which includes stops in New Brunswick, Ontario, and Saskatchewan.
