Part of the mandate of the Canadian Royal Heritage Trust is to provide factual information on the Canadian Monarchy to the public. This part of our website is devoted to that role. Over time, information sheets and essays will be posted here to provide a research asset for persons, especially students, studying the Crown, its history and its role in Canadian life. Check the site regularly to see what is new.
