Professor Angela Cameron is one of 16 new appointees to the Order of Ottawa, a distinction given to outstanding residents who, through their professional achievements, have made an important contribution to life in the City of Ottawa.
This prestigious municipal award was created in 2012 by Jim Watson, Mayor of Ottawa, and members of City Council. Recipients of the Order of Ottawa are chosen by a selection committee composed of the Mayor, the City Clerk and Solicitor, the Chief of Police, the Chief of Protocol, the City Archivist and the Chief Executive Officer, Library Services.
Angela Cameron is one of our city’s leading advocates for the equality and health interests of Indigenous peoples, women and girls, and members of the LGBTQ community. She is heavily involved in both academic and community-based advocacy and research, governance of not-for-profit organizations, voluntary work, and non-academic research for women’s anti-violence organizations. Dr. Cameron often collaborates with people from other disciplines, conducting influential and groundbreaking research on complex legal issues surrounding the exploitation of reproductive technologies, and protecting LGBTQ youth from homophobic bullying at publicly-funded schools.
The Order of Ottawa Awards Ceremony will be held this year at City Hall on November 22nd.
Congratulations to Professor Cameron!
