The Association of Canadian Archivists wishes to congratulate Librarian and Archivist of Canada Emeritus Ian E. Wilson on his promotion to Officer of the Order of Canada, one of the country's highest honours.
Ian was recognized for his significant contributions to Canadian archives and for his published works on history, heritage, and information management.
He served as National Archivist of Canada, 1999 to 2004, and then as head of the newly amalgamated Library and Archives Canada until his retirement in 2009. His career spans many areas, including archival and information management, university teaching, and government service.
Ian holds three honorary doctorates, was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 2003, and was appointed Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the Government of France. He is also a fellow of the Association of Canadian Archivists, the International Council on Archives, and the Society of American Archivists.
We are proud and delighted that Ian has received this most recent honour. Please join us in congratulating him on his promotion!
