Double Major
Is it possible to do a double major in Commerce and Mathematics and graduate with Honours in each?

Commerce doesn't allow for double majors.

Majors Vs. Minor
How is a minor in Math more restrictive than a Major?
What options might it restrict me from?

A minor is typically 24 units, although I believe for math it is 27. A major on the other hand requires many more credits, thus more time, and in the end an increased amount of knowledge.

Technically, you could also graduate with a major in math with your commerce degree, however, in order to do so you would need to take at least another year of classes. You would also need to talk to an academic adviser in order to find out exact details.
