Governor General of Canada / Gouverneur général du Canadaa

Governor General


Bringing Canadians Together

Visiting Canadians. Meeting with Canadians. Bringing Canadians together to meet one another. Whether it's by plane, train, car, or canoe, the Governor travels and re-travels the country from coast to coast to coast visiting Canadians in every province and territory, beyond the capital cities and continuing off the beaten track to visit Canadians on their farms, in their small towns in rural areas and northern communities.

The goal is to experience how Canadians live and listen to how Canadians see their home and their country. The Governor General uses these visits to speak to Canadians about Canadians and to open their eyes to the originality of the people, the land and the language as well as drawing out the similarities that gives us a sense of belonging to the larger Canadian community.

Events at Rideau Hall and La Citadelle also provide occasions for Canadians to meet and exchange ideas.
