Why would the Prime Minister be invited? He is not an acting Head of State. The Governor General is.

Stephen Harper, as the Prime Minister, is the head of the government. The Governor General, as the Queen's representative, is the symbol of Canada when she travels abroad. I like Michelle Jean quite a bit. She always looks wonderful.

I like Michaelle Jean too. She represents Canada well. But I think that the Prime Minister should be invited too. I'm not an expert in protocol.

It's usual that the formal "Representatives" are invited on a State Visit.
Maybe you can compare it with Germany: the chancellor never attends State Visits. The official representative, so the president, is invited instead.
I guess it's similar in Canada: not the Prime Minister is invited, but the official representative of the Queen.
It's always the "Head of State" who is invted.

The PM would have meetings with the Head of government of Norway, not the Head of State. It sounds like lower level government officials will be travelling along with the GG, and they will talk business with their counterparts.

It's my understanding that we created an order in 1967 to mark Canada's centennial. I don't remember the name of it, but I do recall we have never given it to anyone.

The orders the governor general wears on official occasions are only intended for Canadians and are only given to foreigners in truly exceptional cases (I remember the Queen Mother getting the Order of Canada for her own centennial, and I remember a British soldier getting the military order for his bravery in helping Canadians, though I do not recall the specific reasons).

So the lack of exchanged orders is routine for Canada.
