Michael Adams named to the Order of Canada

Environics Institute President and Founder Michael Adams was one of more than 100 prominent Canadians to be named by the Governor General to the Order of Canada.

Rideau Hall revealed the list today, ahead of the country's 150th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the Order. Established in 1967, it is one of the country's highest civilian honours and recognizes Canadians who have been high achievers in their fields, or have shown dedication or service to their community and country.

Michael was recognized for his work in public opinion research, but his accomplishments extend in other areas.

Over the past forty plus years Michael Adams has built a remarkable career, one marked by success in business but even more notably by his dedication and achievements as one of the country’s leading social thinkers and writers.

Michael, more than anyone else over this period, has through his research, publications and public speaking, contributed to helping Canadians understand who they are as a country and a people.

He has achieved a career marked by entrepreneurialism and innovation; a body of writing characterized by curiosity, humour, and intelligence; and a record of community engagement rooted in thoughtfulness and compassion.
