- Long associated with the Royal Family, Christ Church Cathedral is the Anglican cathedral in Canada’s capital. It has been the site of state funerals for several Canadian prime ministers and governors general, as well as commemorative services for members of the Royal Family.
- To pay tribute to Her Majesty, those in Canada’s National Capital Region may gather along the parade route on the National Day of Mourning. Details will be communicated in the coming days.
- Canadians are also invited to sign the online book of condolences or express their condolences in other ways.
- Statutory holidays in Canada can only be granted through legislation, which must pass through the House of Commons and the Senate, and receive Royal Assent.
