Governor General appoints Al Etmanski & Vickie Cammack to the Order of Canada
His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced today 86 new appointments to the Order of Canada. These appointments were made on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada.
The Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest civilian honours, was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Over the last 45 years, more than 6,000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
Co-Founders of the Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network, (PLAN), Al Etmanski and Vickie Cammack have dedicated their lives to fostering communities of care and belonging across Canada. Beginning with PLAN, they went on to develop and scale the Registered Disability Savings Plan. Vickie then launched Tyze Personal Networks, recently acquired by St. Elizabeth Health Care. SiG is very proud to know them as colleagues and friends and we congratulate them on this well-deserved honour.
