Recognizing People. Inspiring Greatness.
Stephenson becomes the first Canadian company to produce the Order of Canada (the equivalent to the US Congressional Medal of Honor). The Order of Canada is produced for the Governor General of Canada who resides in Rideau Hall in Ottawa.
At the suggestion of Mr. Bruce Beatty, the chief designer of the Canadian Honors System, the company was renamed Rideau to reflect the fact that it made the most important recognition award in the country.
