Background


The Order of Military Merit (French: Ordre du mérite militaire) is a military honour for merit that is, within the Canadian system of honours, the second highest order administered by the Governor General-in-Council, on behalf of the Queen of Canada. Created in 1972 to replace a grouping within the Order of Canada, the three-tiered order was established to recognize members of the Canadian Forces — either regular or reserve personnel — who have demonstrated dedication and devotion beyond the call of duty, achieving conspicuous merit and exceptional military service.
