Huu-ay-aht citizen Marjorie White received Order of Canada

Huu-ay-aht elder Marjorie White is one of 105 appointees to the Order of Canada this year.

Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, today announced the new appointments to the Order of Canada. The new member list includes 3 Companions (C.C.), 20 Officers (O.C.) and 82 Members (C.M.). Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date.

Created in 1967, the Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest civilian honours, 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.

Marjorie White has also been recognized by the Province, receiving the Order of British Columbia in 2016 (pictured here).

Congratulations to Marjorie!
