About the Order of Canada

Created in 1967, the Order of Canada, our country’s highest civilian honour, recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Close to 7,000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order. Their contributions are varied, yet they have all enriched the lives of others and have taken to heart the motto of the Order: DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM (“They desire a better country”). Appointments are made by the Governor General on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada.
