For more than fifty years, Queen Elizabeth has tirelessly greeted the Canadian public and welcomed the floral bouquets, mementos, and tributes that have been presented to her. She has remarked how she treasures her place in the life of Canada and her bond with Canadians everywhere. Queen Elizabeth has travelled to Canada on twenty-two occasions, a remarkable testament to her affection for Canada.

In her speech delivered in Vancouver 2002, Queen Elizabeth made the following observations:

"As we 'stand on guard' in these opening years of the twenty-first century, I see a Canada which is a much respected global player, a major economic force, a valued Commonwealth leader, a great country. It is therefore with special pride that I take this opportunity during my Jubilee year to pay tribute to Canadians everywhere ... It is a privilege to serve you as Queen of Canada to the best of my ability, to play my part in the Canadian identity, to uphold Canadian traditions and heritage, to recognize Canadian excellence and achievement, and to seek to give a sense of continuity in these exciting, ever-changing times in which we are fortunate enough to live."

Canada's Queen: Elizabeth II is a testament to Queen Elizabeth's reign as Canada's Queen, an enduring pictorial treatment of a remarkable legacy during a formative period of the country's nationhood.
