Capitalize lieutenant-governor when it is directly followed by the person’s name; however, this title is not in uppercase when referring to a role rather than a person. Plural: lieutenant-governors. The abbreviation Lt.-Gov., which should not be used in formal documents, is written with periods, capitals and a hyphen.

The lieutenant-governor of a province has the title Honourable for life; the courtesy title His/Her Honour is used only while in office.
