His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced July 1 50 new appointments to the Order of Canada. The new appointees include 15 Officers (O.C.), and 35 Members (C.M.).

These appointments were made on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada. 

Included in this list is Shaunavon's Haley Wickenheiser as an O.C.

Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date.

The Order of Canada, one of our 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. Over the last 40 years, more than 5 000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
