The occasion of Her Majesty The Queen's Golden Jubilee is a time for Canadians to
express gratitude to their Head of State for her devotion to duty and to reflect
on our growth as a nation during her reign. Over the past 50 years, Queen Elizabeth
has celebrated a number of historic events with us during her official visits to
Canada, including the Bicentennial of New Brunswick, the Centennial of Confederation,
the XXIst Olympiad in Montréal, and the proclamation of the Constitution
Her Majesty and Prince Philip made their first visit to Canada and New Brunswick
in 1951 as Their Royal Highnesses The Princess Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh.
New Brunswick was privileged to host them again in 1959, 1976, and 1984 and to be
included in the 2002 Jubilee tour. During their visits, The Queen and Prince Philip
have experienced our heritage, culture and traditions; participated in historic
ceremonies; and met New Brunswickers from across the province.
Queen Elizabeth has requested that her Golden Jubilee be a time of community celebrations
and of looking forward as well as back. You are invited, through this exhibit, to
reflect on Her Majesty's 50 years of dedicated service and to recall the special
moments she shared with New Brunswickers.
