Office of the Lieutenant Governor Program - VOTE 1701

This program provides the services required by the Lieutenant Governor in performing his constitutional, representational and community duties. In his constitutional role, the Lieutenant Governor represents the Queen, appoints the Premier based on majority support, swears-in the Executive Council, outlines the Government's plans in the Speech from the Throne, provides the Royal Assent needed for bills to become law, approves orders-in-council and appointments recommended by Cabinet, and prorogues or dissolves each session of Parliament. In his community role, the Lieutenant Governor represents the people of Ontario and acts as the Province's official host, welcoming world leaders and diplomats. He annually hosts or attends hundreds of community events throughout Ontario. He promotes themes or issues associated with accessibility for people with visible and invisible disabilities, while also enhancing literacy opportunities for Aboriginal youth.  He presents honours and awards to outstanding Ontarians and, on request, sends messages for special celebrations and congratulations for birthdays of 90 years and over, and for wedding anniversaries of 50 years and over.
