About Stamp

The Order of Canada, centrepiece of the Canadien system of honours, is one of the highest accolades a Canadian may achieve. Two stamps were issued on October 21, 1992 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Order of Canada and to honour its first recipient, the late Right Honourable Roland Michener, P.C., C.C., C.M.M., Q.C., L.L.D., Governor General of Canada from 1967 to 1974. The Queen is the Sovereign of the Order of Canada, with the Governor General presiding over its affairs as a Chancellor. An advisory committee, meeting twice a year, assesses the nominees and makes recommendations for suitable appointments. Once approved by the Sovereign, they are signed by the Governor General and given the Seal of Order. There are three descending levels in the Order: Companion, Officer or Member. Individuals, once appointed, may progress to a higher level. The investiture ceremony takes place at Rideau Hall, residence of the Governor General in Ottawa. The insignia is a stylized snowflake bearing the crown, a maple leaf and the Latin motto "Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam" - they desire a better country. Recipients may also use the initials C.C., O.C., or C.M. following their surnames to denote membership in the Order. According to protocol, the badges must be worn in a specific manner. Male recipientss of the Companion and Officer badges wear it from a ribbon around the neck. A Member's badge is worn on the left side of the chest. Women wear any of the three badges on the left. Each has a miniature replica, suspended from a narrow ribbon, to be worn with evening dress. Small lapel buttons and brooches for women are presented for street clothes.
