Principal Michael Goldbloom Invested Into The Order Of Canada
Michael Goldbloom, C.M., Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Bishop’s University, was invested as Member of the Order of Canada by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, at an investiture ceremony held today at Rideau Hall, in Ottawa.
The honour was bestowed on Mr. Goldbloom for his dedication to the peo- ple and city of Montréal as well as for his compassion and diplomacy which helped foster linguistic duality in Montréal and throughout Quebec.
Mr. Goldbloom has had an exemplary record of service to Canada through his leadership of several important organisations including Alliance Quebec, the Ville Marie Social Centre, the YMCA’s of Quebec, The Montreal Gazette, the Toronto Star and Bishop’s University.
This is the first time that a Principal of Bishop’s University has received one of Canada’s highest civilian honours. The Order of Canada was created in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Its motto is DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM (They desire a better country).
Bishop’s University Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Michael Goldbloom, seen here with Governor-General David Johnston, was made a Member of the Order of Canada, last Friday, in Ottawa.
