Mérite OTTIAQ – Joseph-LaRivière

The OTTIAQ Award of Merit is designed to recognize extraordinary accomplishments or the lifetime achievements of an individual working in the language professions.

The Order wanted to innovate by offering this honorary distinction to both members and non-members. The award therefore raises the profile of the profession in the public eye and helps strengthen the image of language-related activities outside the sphere of the Order.
