Appointment To The Order Of Canada
Appointment into the Order of Canada is the process by which Canadians citizens or certain foreign persons are inducted into the Order of Canada, an act that is Canada's second highest civilian honour within the country's system of honours. Any living Canadian or foreign national may be nominated for appointment; however, the Advisory Council of the Order of Canada and the Governor General of Canada make the final decision on appointments. Members of the order may also be elevated within it if he or she has continued to provide service to Canada, or to humanity in general, after their appointment.
