The Achives of Ontario Celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II - Page Banner and Navigation Bar

Table of Contents


February 6, 2012 marked the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II - 60 years since ascension to the throne in 1952. The Queen is only the second monarch in the United Kingdom to reign for 60 years, the other being Queen Victoria.

The Archives of Ontario has many records relating to the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and the visits she has made to Ontario.

We've included a selection of those materials in this virtual exhibit and invite you to join with us as we reflect on the first sixty years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
