From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category lists the Governors General of Canada from 1867 to the present day.

Note that Governors General who were British peers are normally referred to by their title, not by their given name. For instance, Freeman Freeman-Thomas, 1st Marquess of Willingdon is listed as Willingdon, not as Freeman-Thomas. Some of these Governors General have become known by their family surnames—notably, John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir, is known as John Buchan in his career as a novelist. However, he is still properly referred to as Baron Tweedsmuir in his capacity as Governor General.

One notable exception to this is Frederick Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby, who is known as Lord Stanley of Preston in his capacity as Governor General, as he did not assume the Earl of Derby title until the end of his viceregal term. For clarity, nonetheless, he is listed as Derby, as the article title would indicate.

Under Canadian rules of succession, if a Governor General dies in office, his or her duties are assumed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada until a new Governor General is appointed. This has happened twice in Canadian history, and this category includes the two Acting Governors General (Lyman Poore Duff and Robert Taschereau) as well.
