The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean served as Canada’s 27th Governor General until 2010. A woman who has on more than one occasion been ‘the first’, she was then designated the UNESCO Special Envoy for Haiti. This summer she will also serve as the Grand Témoin de la Francophonie at the Olympic Games in London. It is her responsibility to enforce compliance with the Olympic Charter, which ensures the official language status of French during the event.
NB This portrait was produced while Michaëlle Jean was still Governor General. Michaëlle Jean now acts as special envoy to Haiti for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
