I'm guessing QE2?

If you mean governor general, I believe they all have been about 5 year terms or so. My guess the longest of those would be Georges Vanier who served about 8 years.

GGs are not the Head of State.

As the longest serving monarch in British history that's a pretty safe bet.

QE2 is the longest reigning English monarch but the longest reigning monarch in Canadian history is King Louis XIV with a reign of 72 years 110 days. If Queen Elizabeth II reaches May 27, 2022, she will tie Louis. Here's hoping.

Weird and fun fact even if arguable.  I like it !  :o
