An Indigenous woman will receive the highest honour in Ontario.
Geraldine Robertson will be one of twenty-three recipients of the Order of Ontario.
According to a media source, Robertson was almost 10-years old when she was sent to a residential school in Ontario.
She recounts stories of abuse while living in the school.
Robertson has since been able to use her story to help others and will receive the order for her work.
The award ceremony will take place at Queen’s Park in Toronto on February 27.
