The Order of Canada is bestowed four times a year at an investiture ceremony presided over by Gov. Gen. David Johnston. Anyone can nominate a living Canadian (politicians and judges must not be in office) for the honour, and appointments are recommended by an advisory panel chaired by the chief justice of the Supreme Court.
More than 5,000 people have been invested in the Order since its inception in 1967.
