After making their mark in spheres ranging from health care to social justice, more than two dozen members of the University of Toronto community have been honoured with a new appointment to – or promotion within – the Order of Canada.

Created in 1967, the Order of Canada is one of the country’s highest civilian honours. It recognizes people whose service, innovations and compassion shape Canadian society, foster imagination and unite people and communities.

A total of 135 appointments and promotions were announced on Dec. 29 by Gov. Gen. Mary Simon.

Faculty of Law alumna Dr. Barbara Landau (LLB 1980), a lawyer, psychologist and author, was named a Member for her contributions to dispute resolution and family law reform, and for her advocacy of interfaith initiatives. Landau, who earned her bachelor of arts and LLB degrees from U of T, is lauded for her leadership in family mediation, justice and dispute resolution in Canada. She is president of Cooperative Solutions.
