Original painting of Queen Elizabeth II to mark the historic occasion of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee
Message from the Prime Minister
Canadians have good reason for celebration in 2012 as we mark the Diamond Jubilee of our head of state, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. For only the second time in our history, we will honour the 60-year reign of a Sovereign. The Queen has dedicated her entire life to the service of others and has always held this country and all Canadians in the deepest of pride and affection.
Message from Minister Moore
2012 marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. This Diamond Jubilee year is an opportunity to honour The Queen's extraordinary dedication and service to Canada and to celebrate our country's many achievements during Her Majesty's reign.
