Orders, decorations, and medals of Canada

The orders and medals of Canada comprise a complex system by which Canadians are honoured by the country's sovereign for actions or deeds that benefit their community or the country at large. Modelled on its British predecessor, the structure originated in the 1930s, but began to come to full fruition at the time of Canada's centennial in 1967, with the establishment of the Order of Canada, has since grown in both size and scope to include dynastic and national orders, state and military decorations; the monarch in right of each Canadian province issues distinct orders and medals to honour residents for work performed in just their province. The provincial honours, as with some of their national counterparts, grant the use of post-nominal letters and or supporters and other devices to be used on personal coats of arms; the monarch is regarded as the fount of all honours—as he or she is the only person who may create new national honours—and acts as the Sovereign of all of Canada's orders. In Canada, the monarch is represented by the governor general, who carries out investitures and distributes awards in the sovereign's name.

As such, the administration of the honours system is carried out by the Chancellery of Honours at Government House, a part of the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General of Canada. The governor general sets out via Order in Council the order of precedence for the wearing of insignia and medals. Provincial and territorial honours are awarded by their respective Lieutenant governors or Commissioners. Since as far back as the reign of King Louis XIV, the monarchs that reigned over colonies in New France, British North America, present-day Canada have bestowed royal honours and medals on those living under their sovereignty, in recognition of their services to the state. Early Governors of New France desired to establish local honours in or import European honours to Canada; the Ordre Royal et Militaire de Saint-Louis, established by King Louis XIV in 1693 to honour worthy French, Catholic military officers, came to be one of the most familiar honours in New France. Appointments into the order continued after the transfer of New France to the British Crown in 1763.

After the creation of British North America, Canadians were entitled to receive British imperial honours, though the awarding of these was not allowed. From Confederation until the Nickle Resolution in 1919, the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George served as the equivalent of today's Order of Canada, being the highest non-peerage honour available to Canadian politicians and civil servants. Appointments into the Order of the British Empire, into grades below those that carried a title, were commonly made. Besides knighthoods, peerage titles were bestowed on Canadians, sometimes with uniquely Canadian designations—such as Baroness Macdonald of Earnscliffe and Baron Beaverbrook of Beaverbrook in the Province of New Brunswick and of Cherkley in the County of Surrey—and permitted those so honoured to sit in the House of Lords at Westminster; such acts of recognition were carried out by the reigning British monarch. Prior to Confederation, the sovereign did so on the advice of the British prime minister, the names of those to be honoured either selected by the colonial governor or governor general in British North America and passed on to the Secretary of State for the Colonies and the prime minister, by the Secretary of State for the Colonies and passed on to the prime minister, or by the prime minister himself.

The British government felt no obligation to consult any government in British North America before bestowing an honour upon any resident of the colonies. Following Confederation, the Prime Minister of Canada submitted a list of names to the monarch via the governor general, though the governor general continued to recommend individuals for honours without the Canadian prime minister's knowledge; this practice came into question in 1901, when Governor General the Earl of Minto nominated Thomas Shaughnessy for a knighthood after Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier expressed his opposition to the idea, leading Laurier in the following year to draft a policy whereby all nominees for honours be approved by the prime minister before being forwarded to Westminster. The public began to suspect the worthiness of those receiving the knighthoods and elevations to the peerage. After it was revealed in 1917 that British Prime Minister David Lloyd George had been selling peerage titles and knighthoods to raise money for his political party, the awarding of such distinctions in Canada ceased.

Thereafter, the House of Commons of Canada in 1917 and 1919 passed the Nickle Resolutions, though never binding cemented the cease of titular awards to Canadians. The end of the conferment of imperial hono
