President David Chartrand will be inducted into the Order of Manitoba in a ceremony scheduled for July 15th, 2013 at the Manitoba Legislative Building.

The Order of Manitoba was established in 1999, and is the highest honour in the Province of Manitoba. It recognizes people whose excellence and achievement have benefited the social, cultural or economic well-being of the province and its residents.

The President will be honoured for promoting issues of social justice and advancing the cause of the Manitoba Metis.

Ray St. Germain who is a proud supporter of Métis and Aboriginal culture, celebrated performer, producer, author, television and radio host of Métis Hour x2, will also be inducted during this ceremony.

Order of Manitoba recipients are selected by an independent advisory council that evaluates nominees and recommends up to 12 candidates each year to the chancellor. Once inducted, members may use the initials O.M. after their names for life.
