HISTORY happens here

Every day, during events held at Rideau Hall and at the Citadelle of Québec—or in communities across Canada and around the world—the governor general meets outstanding Canadians and hears inspiring stories about their achievements. Often relating to one or more of the governor general’s core responsibilities, these stories can inspire and entertain us, and inform us on what it means to be Canadian. As the country’s unofficial storyteller-in-chief, the governor general helps us explore and understand Canada’s unique nature and the lives of the diverse, extraordinary people who call it home.
