Haiti - Social : Samuel Pierre becomes Member of the Order of Canada
His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced today 66 new appointments to the Order of Canada. These appointments were made on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada.

Among the recipients include the eminent professor Samuel Pierre, President of GRAHN-Monde, which was elevated to the rank of Member of the Order of Canada. Mr. Pierre will receive insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date for his contributions to the field of wired and wireless communications networks, and for his volunteerism within Quebec's Haitian community.

In 2009, Pierre Samuel was elevated to the rank of Knight of the National Order of Quebec.

"We wish him our warmest congratulations. It is an honor that reflects on the entire Haitian community of Canada," declared Daniel Supplice, Minister of Haitians Living Abroad.
