The Ordre de Montréal recognizes eight UdeM faculty and alumni who have enhanced the city’s growth and influence.
Several distinguished members of the University of Montreal community will be decorated with the Ordre de Montréal at a ceremony on May 15, 2022 at City Hall. Established in 2016 to replace the Académie des Grands Montréalais, this distinction honours individuals who have made a tangible contribution to Montreal’s economic and social development.
Following a public call for nominations in 2021 and then recommendations by the Ordre de Montréal advisory committee, the appointments were unveiled on April 21, 2022. Based on their achievements, the recipients will be appointed to the rank of either Commander, Officer or Knight.
“Montreal is being built and evolving thanks to all of its residents,” said Mayor Valérie Plante. “We would like to recognize the contribution of these people and celebrate their talent and dedication. The Ordre de Montréal is a way we can thank and promote these exceptional Montrealers who care about their city and the people who live here. This is Montréal’s highest honour.”
