Canadian Club of Vancouver Welcomes Governor General of Canada

The Flag Shop is a proudly Canadian company, and a long-time supporter of the Canadian Club of Vancouver.

The Canadian Club had its beginnings in 1906 and continues to actively fulfill its purpose to foster fellowship among people, and encourage the celebration of the Canadian identity. The club hosts events featuring special guests who share knowledge, insights, and personal pride in Canadian pursuits.

On Thursday, March 22, 2018, the Canadian Club will welcome and honour Order of Canada and Order of British Columbia recipients at a very special lunch event.

Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, will be the keynote speaker. Ms. Payette is well-known for being an astronaut, and from 1992 to 2013, she flew two missions in space, also serving for many years as Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM), at NASA’s Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas. She was also Chief Astronaut for the Canadian Space Agency.

The Order of Canada was established by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in 1967, and is the foundation of the Canadian Hon­ours System, recognizing exceptional achievement, service to the nation, and dedication to the community. The Order of British Columbia was established in 1989, to recognize persons who have served with the highest distinction, and who have excelled in any field, to the benefit of the people of British Columbia, or beyond.
