Earlier this year, we were inspired by a number of 50th anniversary initiatives in which members of the Order worked together and generously shared their thoughts and ideas with Canadians.
One was the Walrus Talks Conversations About Canada: We Desire a Better Country, which brought Order of Canada members and youth leaders together for a series of speaking events in all 13 provinces and territories.
Another partnership took place with the help of Experiences Canada to present Canada150&Me, in which members inspired and spoke with young people about the biggest opportunities and challenges facing Canada today. Their perspectives were illuminating.
Both initiatives demonstrated how the Order can bring people together to develop ideas and solutions for a better Canada. We thank all those who participated.
