{{about|the order of precedence for Canadian dignitaries|the list of precedence for medals, honours and post-nominals|Canadian order of precedence (decorations and medals)}}{{Precedence}}The Canadian order of precedence is a nominal and symbolic hierarchy of important positions within the governing institutions of Canada. It has no legal standing but is used to dictate ceremonial protocol.The Department of Canadian Heritage issues a Table of Precedence for Canada,Department of Canadian Heritage: Table of Precedence for Canada which does not include members of the Royal Family, save for the sovereign, mentioned in a note as preceding the governor general. The Department of National Defence issues near identical guidelines, with the primary difference being the inclusion of members of the Canadian Royal Family,The Honours, Flags and Heritage Structure of the Canadian Forces {{webarchive |url=https://web.archive.org/web/20090325162006weblink |date=March 25, 2009 }} specifying that they take precedence after the governor general. The provinces and territories of Canada also have their own orders of precedence for events of a provincial or territorial nature. They serve the same purpose and are structured similarly, but place an emphasis on provincial or territorial offices.All units of the Canadian Forces also have an order of precedence that determines seniority; it often decides such matters as which unit forms up to the right (senior side) of other units on a ceremonial parade, or the order in which marches or calls are played at a mess dinner.
  1. Queen of Canada (Elizabeth IIFootnote 1 of the Table of Precedence for Canada issued by the Department of Canadian Heritage states that the Queen is to be afforded precedence immediately before the Governor General. No other members of the Royal Family are listed in the table or mentioned in the footnotes. The Department of National Defence's protocol, places members of the royal family immediately after the Governor General when they are in Canada. That DND protocol does not list a precedence within the royal family.)
