Former New Brunswick lieutenant governor Graydon Nicholas has been named to the Order of Canada, along with Ilkay Silk, Tim Borlase and Madeleine Delaney-LeBlanc. They are among the 113 new appointees announced Thursday by Governor General David Johnston.

Two recipients were rewarded for their contribution to the arts in New Brunswick:

Timothy Borlase, of Pointe-du-Chêne and Happy Valley-Goose Bay, N.L., “For his contributions to arts, music and drama initiatives, particularly for youth, in communities across Labrador and New Brunswick.
Ilkay Silk, of Fredericton, longtime drama co-ordinator for St. Thomas University, “For her contributions to arts and culture organizations in New Brunswick, particularly for her work with youth in theatre.”

The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.
