Anne Tennier, president and chief executive officer of the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) receives Francophone honour – 2019 Ordre de la Pléiade.
The medal is an internationally-recognized award bestowed upon individuals who make significant contributions to their francophone communities and have upheld the ideals of the Ontario Branch of the Parliamentary Assembly of Francophonie (APF).
The health and safety leader is one of six Franco-Ontarians to receive the award. The recipients are selected by a committee of non-partisan parliamentarians.
Tennier, well known in Hamilton, Ont., for her community involvement, works with the Hamilton Conservation Foundation, is the chair of the board of directors for the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a director of the Centre Francophone Hamilton, a multidisciplinary centre that promotes Francophone arts and culture.
The ceremony was held on April 15, 2019, at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in Toronto.
