Canadian Coats of Arms

In Canada, the governor general grants coats of arms to cities, towns, schools, universities, hospitals, churches, private companies, individuals, cultural organizations and others. Coats of arms are symbols of authority, ownership and identity and are part of the national honours system. Designed by heralds in the governor general’s office, coats of arms are simple, yet colourful, and filled with symbols that have great meaning for their owners.
