This is a list of post-nominal letters used in Canada. The order in which they follow an individual's name is:
- Distinctions conferred directly by the Crown
- University degrees
- Memberships of societies and other distinctions
Normally no more than two are given, representing the highest award of each type. For decorations and medals, the order of precedence is the same as the order of precedence for the wearing of order insignias, decorations, and medals, as laid out by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
Awards and orders

Thirty recipients of the Medal of Service died prior to 1972 and thus were never converted to Officers of the Order of Canada.|
|Note: Precedence of provincial orders are in order of when they were added to the national orders system at the request of the provincial orders system, not by the normal order of precedence for provinces.|

|Privy Councillor||A Privy Councillor is also entitled to be styled "The Honourable" or "L'honorable" for life. The post-nominal letters are necessary to denote that someone is a privy councillor because in Canada holding a certain office can also allow the use of The Honourable title. Unlike what is done in the United Kingdom, the post-nominals "PC" have precedence over all Crown honours with two notable exceptions: the Victoria Cross ("VC") and the Cross of Valour ("CV").
In practice, post-nominals are not usually translated from one language to another, but this is an exception.
|ECNS||Member of the Executive Council of Nova Scotia||Used for members (including honorary members) of the Executive Council of Nova Scotia since 2007.|

Section 6 states that every former living member as of 6 February 2022, and anybody who becomes a former member of the Executive Council, is designated as an honorary member.|
|MP||Member of House of Commons of Canada||Letters are short for "Member of Parliament". This title is used in Canada and other Commonwealth nations to describe members of the lower house of Parliament only. The Senate of Canada is part of Parliament, but its members are not called MPs.|
|MPP||Member of the Ontario Legislative Assembly after 1938||Letters are short for "Member of Provincial Parliament". Before 1938, members used MLA.|

The exact hierarchy of professional degrees relative to academic degrees varies. For example, a Bachelor of Laws degree (LLB) from North American schools is treated as equivalent to a Juris Doctor degree (JD). On the other hand, a Bachelor of Applied Science degree (BASc) at many schools can be done straight of out highschool, and is treated as the same level as academic bachelor's degrees like a Bachelor of Arts degree.
In academic contexts, it is common to give an abbreviation of name of the school awarding the degree after the letters for the degree itself. The way school names are abbreviated can vary. For example, a PhD from Memorial University of Newfoundland can be found written as PhD (MUN) or PhD (Memorial). When a person has multiple degrees from the same school, the school name is only written once, after all degrees from that school.
