Two Londoners are among 100 new appointments announced by the Governor General to the Order of Canada.
The Order of Canada was established in 1967 and is one of the country’s highest civilian honours, recognizing outstanding achievement, dedication, and service.
“Besides marking Canada’s 150th anniversary,” writes Governor General David Johnston, “2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Order. So let’s be inspired by the examples set by these remarkable Canadians and use this occasion to build a smarter and more caring country in which every individual can succeed to the greatest extent possible.”
