Two of the country's most beloved ice dancers just got one of Canada's highest honours ever.
Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Olympic gold medalists, were just appointed to The Order of Canada.
The pair took home the coveted prize alongside other Canadians who shaped the country in meaningful ways.
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.
The Governor of General of Canada.
The Order of Canada, which was created in 1967, is one of the nation's highest civilian honours, according to The Governor of General of Canada.
The award takes into account incredible accomplishments and dedication to the community and service to Canada.
More than 7,000 individuals have already been appointed into the Order in all of Canada's history.
Now, Virtue and Moir are among the few to receive the honour along with 112 other appointees.
The duo was granted the award because of their "unparalleled excellence in ice dancing and for inspiring the next generation of Canadian figure skaters."
