Governor General of Canada / Gouverneur général du Canadaa




Although not part of the Canadian Honours System, many awards are also given in the Governor General’s name or under the name of a former governor general. Among these, the Governor General’s Academic Medal (established in 1873 by Lord Dufferin) and the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award (established in 1996 by the Rt. Hon. Roméo LeBlanc) are administered by the Chancellery at Government House.
