The Order was instituted in three grades, of which ‘officer’ is the middle rank, on 17 April 1967 and the first awards were made on 1 July 1967, the centennial of the creation of the Federal Dominion of Canada.

It is awarded for ‘the highest degree of merit, an outstanding level of talent and service, or an exceptional contribution to Canada and humanity’ and may be awarded to any living Canadian not in current Federal or provincial political or judicial office.
