OTTAWA [7] Rideau Hall

Adrienne Clarkson is Canada's Governor General. Born in Hong Kong in 1939, Madame Clarkson came to Canada as a refugee with her family, during the war in 1942. She received her early education in the Ottawa public school system and later obtained an Honours B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Toronto. She also did post-graduate work at the Sorbonne in France. Madame Clarkson is fluently bilingual.

For over 130 years, Rideau Hall has been the official residence of the Governor General of Canada, the Queen's representative in the country.
