Photos: Queen Elizabeth II's visits to Canada over the years

Over the years, Queen Elizabeth II conducted 23 official tours of Canada. Her first was in 1951, one year before she began her reign, where she visited every province as Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh.

The Queen has since then took part in various important events in Canada, such as the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, the 1976 Olympic Games held in Montreal and the 125th anniversary of the country in 1992.

Her most recent visit was in 2010 during an eight-day tour across the country, where she celebrated the centenary of the Canadian Navy and marked that year's Canada Day.
