Officer of the Order of Canada
Richmond Hill, Ontario
For her accomplishments as one of the first superstars of women's hockey and for her contributions to women’s sport in Canada.
I’ve always striven to be the kind of person that my past self would be proud of, and my future self would be fond of. Being appointed to the Order of Canada only proves that dreams really do come true.
The Order of Canada was created in 1967, by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, to honour people whose service shapes our society, whose innovations ignite our imaginations, and whose compassion unites our communities.
