Public Record - Decorations for Bravery Ceremony – February 2010


Governor General Michaëlle Jean presented bravery awards on February 4th, 2010, to 47 individuals who risked their lives in order to save someone else's. One Star of Courage and 46 Medals of Bravery were handed out at the ceremony, which was held at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. The group of recipients included a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, police officers, and three children who had been under the age of 11 when they saved their relatives.

The Bravery Decorations were created in 1972. The incidents don't need to have taken place in Canada and the rescuer doesn't have to be Canadian, but Canadians or Canadian interests must be involved.
