Inviting the Governor General to your event

Each year, the Governor General and His Excellency John Ralston Saul attend special events, ceremonies and celebrations across the country, both together and separately. If you would like them to attend an event, you can invite them by writing a letter (addressed to the Governor General) that includes:

  • background information on the event or organization
  • the date and time of the event (and whether these are flexible) and the venue
  • the number of people expected to participate
  • the role you would like the Governor General to play, if any (e.g., speech, award presentation, etc)
  • name and telephone number of a contact person (and fax if available)

Keep in mind that their programs are planned five to six months in advance.

Please send your invitation by regular mail (no postage necessary) to 1 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A1. All invitations are reviewed by a program officer, who will contact you if any further information is needed. Invitations are then presented to Their Excellencies and decisions are made based on their availability, confirmed program of engagements, travel requirements and other factors.

If you have any questions, please contact the Program Planning section through info@gg.ca
