The Order of St. George welcomed 33 new members who were invested into the Order at St George’s Cathedral in Kingston, Ontario on October 5, 2019. This Investiture celebrated the manifold contributions of Canada’s founding Indigenous peoples to Canada and their communities. Four Indigenous individuals, one each representing the First Nations and the Inuit and two Métis, were inducted as Knights of the Order. Invested also were personnel of the Canadian Armed Forces, first responders and society at large. Representatives of the Assembly of First Nations and senior military officials attended as special and honoured guests.
“We are very pleased to induct these most accomplished individuals into the Order” stated Charles Hill who had the honour of dubbing the new members on behalf of the Grand Master. David Clark presented the postulants with the Order insignia.
A big thank you to Vaughn Hughes and the Kingston Command for putting on an excellent Investiture weekend. We also wish to thank the Most Reverend Don Davidson along with the church staff, plus the staff of the Four Points Hotel for another exceptional job hosting the weekend activities for the Order.
A special thanks to Chevalier Andrew Nellestyn for his exceptional contribution to the Investiture weekend both in the quality and number of Postulants he sponsored, plus the superb Indigenous program at the banquet.
