Journalist Sally Armstrong, Inuit historian Louie Kamookak, and authors Alberto Manguel and Émile Martel were also appointed officers.

Children’s writers Marilyn Baillie and Michel Noël, New Brunswick author and academic Christl Verduyn, and library-science expert Barbara Jean Weihs were named as Order members.
