On July 1, 2016 — Canada Day — I was named a Member of the Order of Canada, the highest civilian honour bestowed by the Canadian government. The citation reads:

Robert J. Sawyer, C.M., for his accomplishments as a science-fiction writer and mentor and for his contributions as a futurist.
(C.M. is the postnominal used by members of the Order of Canada.)

Although I won’t get my Order of Canada medal until the formal investiture ceremony at the Governor General’s residence sometime in the coming year, I was very pleased to find my Order of Canada lapel pins waiting for me upon my return to Toronto yesterday after a vacation in Spain.

  1. What an honour and so well deserved! While I agree with the reasons stated in the GG’s letter, I also believe that you have promoted Canada splendidly, both within your books and in the talks you’ve given throughout the world.

    Regards, Brad Mundy, Winnipeg

  2. Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations Rob, you’re an awesome representative for Canada!
