Former Diplomat Mary Simon is officially the 30th and first Indigenous Governor-General of Canada.
The installation ceremony took place at the Senate building in Ottawa, the Canadian Capital city.
For the first time, the ceremony, conducted in English, and Inuktitut had live coverage and broadcast in eight languages on CBC Radio.
The Governor-General is an Inuk from Kuujjuaq
in Northern Quebec, Canada. Her husband, Whit Fraser, attended the installation ceremony.
The installation could be a journey to healing and reconciliation for the indigenous people of Canada, as observed by a cross-section of Canadians.
The Governor-General is the federal viceregal representative of the Canadian monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
