Exhibitions and New Lesson Plan on Canadian Honours

Eddy and the whole Eduzone team are pleased to invite you to explore the Canadian Honours System with your students through two exhibitions and a new classroom lesson plan.

A mobile exhibit is now on the road travelling across Canada. It’s An Honour! introduces visitors to the Canadian honours that recognize people for extraordinary achievement, bravery, valour and service. To learn more about the exhibit and to find out when it will be visiting your community, check out Exhibit.

If you get a chance to visit Rideau Hall, in Ottawa, don't miss the exhibition A Reflection of Who We Are, which is included in the regular tour of the official residence of the Governor General. Learn the whole story behind insignias and medals, the history of the honours system and the achievements of recipients. Click here for tour schedules and to find out how to make reservations for school groups.

Finally, our new lesson plan provides you with tools and activities to explore the various aspects of the Canadian Honours System with your students. Check out our Edukits at
