The Order of Canada, one of the country’s highest civilian honours, was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to community and service to the nation. During the last 40 years, more than 5 000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
