The Order of British Columbia
The Order of British Columbia was established by statute on April 21, 1989, to recognize those persons who have served with the greatest distinction and excelled in any field of endeavour benefiting the people of the Province or elsewhere. The Order represents the highest form of recognition the Province can extend to its citizens. The Order will be bestowed on the most outstanding British Columbians possessing the above qualifications annually.

Nationally-recognized champion of the poetic form, Morton has single-handedly, and with both levity and sincerity, introduced the appreciation of poetry to diverse economic and culturally diverse groups including Indigenous youth who participated in her nationwide reconciliation project connecting young and old — The Elder Project.
