Message from the Governor General of Canada on the Occasion of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 90th Birthday

OTTAWA, April 21, 2016 /CNW/ - Few individuals have earned as much of our nation's respect and admiration as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Today, on her 90th birthday, Sharon and I would like to convey our best wishes to The Queen on behalf of all Canadians.

For 90 years, Canadians have been inspired by the life and accomplishments of the Queen. For decades we have been witness to her compassion and her strong sense of loyalty, duty and service. She has been our Queen for longer than most of us can remember. And whenever she comes to Canada, we welcome her with open arms. 

To mark this very special occasion, Rideau Hall will present a Military Tattoo on the afternoon of May 14, 2016, which will be open to the public and will showcase the best of our Canadian Armed Forces through military music, drills and precision.

I invite Canadians wishing to send birthday wishes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, to do so on our website at
