On June 30, Gov. Gen. David Johnston announced that three Canadian Frailty Network participants had been appointed to the Order of Canada.

In a news release, Johnston’s office said:

  • Noralou Roos of CFN partner Evidence Network was promoted to Officer “for contributing to Canadian health care by developing evidence-based policy, and for promoting and disseminating medical research with a particular focus on children’s well-being.”
  • The Honourable Sharon Carstairs, P.C., CFN founding Board Chair, was appointed “for her public service and for her work as a champion of palliative care.”
  • Carole Estabrooks, member of CFN’s Knowledge Translation Committee, was appointed “for her contributions to translating research into health care improvements for older Canadians.”

Congratulations Sharon, Carole and Noralou!

The Order of Canada was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Over the past 49 years, more than 6,500 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
