Six Nations’ very own Ron Jamieson was awarded a medal and invested to the Order of Ontario during a ceremony at Queen’s Park on Thursday.

Jamieson, along with 24 others, were awarded the province of Ontario’s highest official honour which, according to their website, “…recognizes any current or former long-time resident of Ontario who has demonstrated a high level of individual excellence and achievement in any field benefiting the people of Ontario or anywhere in the world.”

Jamieson spoke with the Two Row Times following the ceremony and said, “I was very honoured to be chosen among such a stellar group of people. I was also humbled. Some of the people were neurosurgeons. David Cronenburg the big director/producer of movies, he was inducted. Steve Paiken of TV Ontario, it’s a pretty elite group. I was just pretty humbled to be inducted myself.”

Jamieson has been long active in economic development for aboriginal communities across Canada. He previously served as the Senior Vice-President of Aboriginal Banking at BMO Financial Group. Jamieson now has numerous leadership positions including a seat on the board for the Ontario Power Authority and Nuclear Waste Management Canada. He is Chairman of the Council for Aboriginal Business, President of First Canadian Property Investments Ltd and serves Denendeh Investment Incorporated, all of which seek to support the infrastructure and economic growth of indigenous communities.
