Provincial Capital Commission Celebrates How The Commonwealth Connects Us All

The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) is celebrating Commonwealth Day today with a special presentation and official launch of a new temporary exhibit at Government House.  The celebration includes a presentation by Dr. D. Michael Jackson on The Queen and the Commonwealth.

For his talk, Dr. Jackson will draw upon his vast knowledge of the British Empire and Royal Family as the provincial Chief of Protocol from 1985 to 2005; as the founding president of the Royal Victorian Order Association of Canada and as current president of the Institute of the Study of the Crown in Canada.

Following the presentation, the PCC will launch a new Shared Link to the Crown display at Government House.  This temporary display, created by the South Saskatchewan Branch Monarchist League of Canada and the United Empire Loyalists’ Association Canada Saskatchewan Branch, features a resource library for guests to borrow items to take home and show family and friends.

“Since 1977, Commonwealth Day has been celebrated across our province and country,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Lori Carr said.  “Saskatchewan is proud of the multicultural heritage of all its citizens; this diversity is what helps make our province a great place in which to live and work.”
