On Thursday March 14, 2019, MacOrtho's Head of the Division, Dr. Mohit Bhandari,​ officially ​was invested into the Order of Canada by Governor General Julie Payette. Dr. Bhandari is being recognized as a global leader in the promotion of evidence-based surgery and is being recognized for his outstanding contributions to the field of orthopaedic trauma and for his pioneering research in the area of intimate partner violence.  

The Order of Canada is one of our country’s highest civilian honours. Its Companions, Officers and Members take to heart the motto of the Order: DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM (“They desire a better country”).

Created in 1967, the Order of Canada recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Close to 7 000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order. Those who bear the Order’s iconic snowflake insignia have changed our nation’s measure of success and, through the sum of their accomplishments, have helped us build a better Canada.

Congratulations Dr. Bhandari on this well-deserved and prestigious achievement!
