Order of Canada

Pierre Deschamps, C.M., B.C.L.

Montréal, Quebec [Canada]

Member of the Order of Canada

Awarded on October 21, 1999; Invested on April 26, 2000

This lawyer and professor of law at McGill University is first and foremost a citizen committed to his community on matters dealing with medicine. For a number of years, he has devoted much of his time to various organizations associated with child cancer patients. He is also concerned with issues of medical liability. We have him to thank for, among other things, a Quebec Department of Health report, named after him, which is today regarded as authoritative in the field of clinical research control mechanisms.
