The latest appointments to the Order of Canada have been announced by Gov. Gen. Julie Payette, who herself is a member of the exclusive club that “honours people who make extraordinary contributions to the nation.”
The new member list includes 2 Companions (C.C.), 15 Officers (O.C.) and 86 Members (C.M.), including 2 Honorary Members.
Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date.
Created in 1967, the Order of Canada is one of Canada’s highest honours and close to 7,000 people have been invested.
