John Borrows, Canada Research Chair of Indigenous Law, has been appointed as an Officer of the Order of Canada (O.C.) for his scholarly work on Indigenous rights and legal traditions, which have had a significant impact across Canada and abroad. Borrows, co-founder of the Indigenous law degree program at UVic, was among 62 new appointments to the Order of Canada announced Dec. 30 by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada.

Since its creation in 1967, more than 7,000 trailblazers from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order—one of Canada’s highest civilian honours.
