The Order of Canada and other honours

Every nation has a system to recognise its most deserving citizens. Canada’s is called the honours system, which awards a number of different orders, decorations and medals. Canada followed the British honours system for many years, but began its own system in 1967, 100 years after Confederation, with the Order of Canada.

Any Canadian can nominate a fellow citizen who they feel is deserving of an honour.
