Remembering the Queen
By City of Vancouver
On behalf of the residents of Vancouver, we send our sincere condolences to the Royal Family on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022, at the age of 96.
Her Majesty visited Canada on numerous occasions throughout her lifetime. She made her first visit to Vancouver City Hall as Princess Elizabeth with her husband, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on October 20, 1951. In March 1983, the couple visited Vancouver City Hall again and were warmly received by city staff and local residents. Her last visit to Vancouver was in 2002.
The Canadian flag at Vancouver City Hall and on City and Park Board facilities is lowered to half-mast and will remain at half-mast until sunset on the day of her memorial service.
