Order of Canada
CBC News Online | May 14, 2004

The Order of Canada is awarded to Canadians who have made a recognizable difference to the country. The honour, which is the highest in Canada, was established in 1967 to recognize extraordinary Canadians and their extraordinary achievements. In total, the Order has been presented to more than 4,000 people.

A diverse group of Canadians known as the advisory council selects the recipients twice a year. The Governor General presents the insignias to honorees during two different ceremonies each year. The insignias vary according to the recipient's level of honour. The three different levels in order from lowest to highest are: Member, Officer and Companion.

Members of the Order have made an exceptional contribution to Canadians at a local or regional level. For instance, Sarah Anala became a member in 1996 for counselling offenders and their families in the Inuit, Mi'kmaq and Maliseet communities. Up to 136 members may be appointed each year.

Officers of the Order have shown an outstanding level of talent and service to Canadians. Rex Harrington became an officer this year for his extensive contribution as a principal dancer of the National Ballet of Canada. Up to 64 officers may be appointed each year.

Companions of the Order have shown Canada the most exceptional achievements — of national or international significance. In 1987, Rick Hansen became a companion of the Order for his world tour, in which he raised funds for people with disabilities. Up to 15 companions may be appointed each year.

Just when I thought I couldn't be more proud of her. Makes me even more proud to be Canadian too, seeing the country award such an honor to such a deserving person.

cbspock 11-16-2005 10:34 AM

So is it going to be presented to "Shania Twain" or "Eilleen Lange"???

I'm with you Cheryl and Benjamin. Shania has done her Country a great service over the years just being herself and utilizing her wonderful God-given talents for the good of the world. No wonder Canada is proud of her efforts. I also thought Chris was observant in that will she get this as Eilleen, or Shania? It would seem to me that Eilleen would be the logical choice, it is her given name, yet still she is getting the award for being Shania as well. :confused: :HA I am also curious to see what the medal will look like since it has been said it won't be the one dax posted. :)

Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean will invest Twain, a native of Timmins, Ont., as an officer in the prestigious order, which recognizes contributions to Canadian culture and society.

The order has three levels: companion, officer and member.

Jean's office cited the singer's "rags-to-riches story" as it praised her efforts to lessen child hunger through school breakfast programs and support for food banks.

Twain's name was announced Tuesday, the same day she was a presenter for the Country Music Awards in New York.

Channel 3 News in Timmins will be taping the Parliamentary Channel Friday morning (the only TV channel to carry the whole ceremony), to get video of Shania getting her award. They'll try to put it on the web that night, and into the weekend.

THANKS CORINNA for the INFO!!! :Bthumb :clap So fans will be able to see a short clip of Shania at the ceremony online.. :giggy:

Country singer Shania Twain to receive Order of Canada

OTTAWA (AFP) - Singer Shania Twain will become an officer of the Order of Canada during a ceremony in Ottawa, receiving the country's highest honour for outstanding achievement and service.

The Canadian superstar's "rags-to-riches story" has become legendary, Governor General Michaelle Jean said in a statement announcing the award.

"From small-town Ontario to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry, her journey has inspired countless other emerging musicians," Jean said.

"Although impoverished materially as a child, she was instilled with a strong sense of pride by her family. Even then, music played an important role in her day-to-day life," the governor general said. "Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots."

Twain will be one of 43 people -- including former politicians, architects, businessmen, scientists and speedskater Catriona Le May Doan -- to be presented the honour by the governor general.

The award also recognizes Twain's support for a number of food distribution agencies and school breakfast programs that aim to eliminate child hunger.

they all seem to have that beautiful Pic from last night... :BigLove
