Message from the Governor General of Canada Following the Announcement of Canada’s 29th Governor General

BEIJING, CHINA - From Beijing, China, where I am currently undertaking an official visit with a delegation of distinguished Canadians, I am delighted to congratulate my successor, Ms. Julie Payette, on today’s announcement by Her Majesty The Queen and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, appointing her as Canada’s 29th governor general upon her installation this Fall.

Ms. Payette is one of Canada’s most remarkable and accomplished citizens, and her appointment to the position of governor general of Canada is wonderful news for our country. It’s a function I’ve been so privileged to hold for the past seven years, and I am certain that she will fulfil this role with intelligence, grace and energy, and that she will bring qualities of curiosity, courage and compassion to her mandate.

In Ms. Payette we welcome a Canadian of extraordinary achievement, admired by all, especially for her time as an astronaut who flew two missions in space. She has made Canada very proud and will continue to do so by connecting, honouring and inspiring Canadians as the next representative of Her Majesty The Queen.
