The Order is the province’s highest honour a citizen can receive and is an official part of the Canadian Honours System.

“These extraordinary citizens have dedicated themselves to lifting up others and to strengthening the quality of life we all enjoy. They remind us of the enduring and essential place that resilience, innovation and compassion hold in the story of our province and country, and they inspire us all in our own efforts to be of service.”

Lt.-Gov. Salma Lakhani
