Two New Brunswickers are being invested in the Order of Canada this week.

Euclide Patrice Chiasson, C.M.
Dieppe, New Brunswick

A key figure in New Brunswick’s co-operative and community sectors, Euclide Chiasson is an outstanding Acadian leader. As founder of the magazine Ven’d’est and of the Parti Acadien, and as former director of the Fondation du Collège de Bathurst, he has helped shape the Acadian identity. Former president of the Société Nationale de l’Acadie, he brilliantly led the petition for the Crown to recognize the wrongs suffered by Acadians during the deportation. A natural at bringing people together, he is also the instigator and founding president of the Barque, a non-profit public education co-operative.

Lorio Roy, C.M.
Moncton, New Brunswick

Lorio Roy has been devoted to the development and prosperity of northern New Brunswick for more than 40 years. A recognized leader, he has played significant roles in the growth and strengthening of regional organizations in the fields of communication, education, labour and the co-operative movement. He notably served with the Francophone community colleges of New Brunswick, the Co-op Atlantic movement, and was at the head of L’Acadie Nouvelle, the province’s only French-language daily newspaper. His volunteer efforts have benefited the social, cultural and economic interests of New Brunswick’s Acadian community.

A ceremony will be held in Ottawa on Thursday, October 26 at 10:30 a.m.
