Book Description

The Canadian Crown is a unique institution that has been integral to our ideals of democracy from its beginning in 16th-century New France.

Canadians enjoy one of the most stable forms of government on the planet, but there is a crisis in our understanding of the role the Crown plays in that government. Media often refer to the governor general as the Canadian head of state, and the queen is frequently misidentified in Canada as only the British monarch, yet she has been queen of Canada since 1952. Even government publications routinely cast the Crown as merely a symbolic institution with no impact on the daily lives of Canadians — this is simply not true. Errors such as these are echoed in school textbooks and curriculum outlines.

Canada’s Constitutional Monarchy has been written to counter the misinformation given to Canadians, reintroducing them to a rich institution integral to our ideals of democracy and parliamentary government. Nathan Tidridge presents the Canadian Crown as a colourful and unique institution at the very heart of our Confederation, exploring its history from its beginnings in 16th-century New France, as well as its modern relationships with First Nations, Honours, Heraldry, and the day-to-day life of the country.

Editorial Reviews


“…this volume deserves wide availability in secondary schools and public libraries across Canada.” (CM Magazine 2012-02-10)

“In taking the information from the root of the topic – the history – and moving through to build on those topics in a way that is necessary for an informed read, Tidridge has ensured that is book is informative and interesting.” (Resource Links 2012-02-01)

“…attractively illustrated…” (OHS Bulletin 2012-02-01)

“…an excellent, handy, and vastly informative, not to mention entertaining book…” (The Hamilton Spectator 2012-03-09)


"Nathan Tidridge's new book on the Canadian monarchy is an invaluable guide to all things royal in Canada. We were in danger of letting this hugely important institution fall by the wayside through neglect and ignorance, so his painstaking account of all that is entailed in our history and constitutional profile, is immensely valuable."

(John Fraser)
