Information about Canada
Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II (1952) is Queen of Canada. She has dedicated her life to public service and continues to serve Canada and Canadians after 60 years. On her 21st birthday (April 21, 1947), she addressed the Commonwealth and dedicated her life "whether it be long or short" to the service of others. In the interim years, she has been steadfast in keeping her promise — a promise quite valued by Canada, valued by the entire Commonwealth.
Julie Payette was installed as the 29th governor general of Canada on October 2, 2017 and at that time became Chancellor and Principal Companion of the Order of Canada, Chancellor of the Order of Military Merit and Chancellor of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces. She took the charge from former Governor General David Johnston who was the 28th governor general of Canada, from October 1, 2010, to October 2, 2017.
