You're invited to visit It’s An Honour!, a new travelling exhibit about the Canadian Honours System that is now making its way across the country. Over the next two years, it will journey to schools, community centres, special events and small towns to connect with and inspire visitors of all ages.
The free exhibit will be open to the general public at Earl Marriott Secondary School.
Mounted in a specially designed 1,000 square foot vehicle, the exhibit showcases stories of great Canadians who have been recognized for their extraordinary achievements with national honours such as the Order of Canada, Decorations for Bravery and Military Valour Decorations. Featuring interpretative panels, multimedia elements and artifacts, this unique space provides an opportunity for visitors to learn more about these honours through an interactive learning experience.
Visitors can catch a glimpse of insignia and medals, discover the unique stories of many honours recipients and watch a hologram message from former Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. Throughout their visit, visitors can also learn more on the role and responsibilities of the Governor General of Canada and how to nominate deserving individuals from their community for national honours.
