Great Seal of Ontario
The Great Seal of Ontario is a seal used to authenticate documents issued by the government of Ontario that are released in the name of the Queen in Right of Ontario, including the appointment of the Executive Council and Ministers (the Cabinet).
In the centre of the Great Seal is the shield from the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom (representing link to Britain) and surmounded by a St. Edward's Crown. Several borders surround these symbols, including the words The Seal of the Province of Ontario (English only).
The keeper of the Great Seal is the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, but the Minister of Government and Consumer Services maintains day-to-day custody of the seal.
