Death of Queen Elizabeth II: Canada's flag at half mast for Her Majesty

DAY

The flag of Canada is at half-mast following the death of the Queen and will remain so until the day of the commemoration of the death of Queen Elizabeth II. 

The rules for half-masting the National Flag of Canada provide that flags shall be half-masted on all Canadian government buildings and establishments, at home and abroad, until sunset on the day of the National Remembrance Ceremony, which will take place at Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa. The time and date are yet to be confirmed.

Mary Simon, Governor General of Canada, invited the public to come and sign the book of condolences in honor of the Queen at Rideau Hall, Ottawa , from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., this Friday.

There is also a virtual book of condolences on the Heritage Canada site, as well as a memorial section on the gg.ca site, with a special photo gallery .
