The former Conservative PM joins film director James Cameron, retired diplomat Raymond Chretien, philanthropist and founder of McDonald’s Canada George Cohon and optical physicist and Nobel Prize winner Donna Strickland in receiving the highest honour, Companion of the Order of Canada.

Appointments are made by the governor general on the recommendation of the order’s advisor council. Friday’s announcement also include 38 nominations for ‘Officer of the Order of Canada’ and 77 for ‘Member of the Order of Canada’ status.
