Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, invested 2 Companions, 15 Officers and 24 Members into the Order of Canada on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, at 10:30 a.m., at Rideau Hall.
Created in 1967, the Order of Canada 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. Those who bear the Order’s iconic snowflake insignia have changed our nation’s measure of success and, through the sum of their accomplishments, have helped us build a better Canada.
Neuroethics Canada’s Dr. Judy Illes has been appointed as a Member of the Order of Canada for her contributions to the field of neurology, including pioneering research that has highlighted the ethical, social and legal implications of advances in neuroscience.
