Myles Murphy Receives the Royal Assent to the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador
On behalf of the Deaf Literacy Initiative congratulations to Myles Murphy a Deaf leader in Newfoundland & Labrador. I had the honour of working with him when we served on the Governance of the Canadian Association of the Deaf. His devotion, commitment and passion for the work he has done for the Deaf community should not go unnoticed. DLI will be interviewing him for our next DLI newsletter.

The Order of Newfoundland and Labrador is a civilian honour for merit in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Instituted in 2001, when Lieutenant Governor Arthur Maxwell House granted Royal Assent to the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador Act, the order is administered by the Governor-in-Council and is intended to honour current or former Newfoundland and Labrador residents for demonstration of excellence and achievement in any field of endeavour benefiting in an outstanding manner the province and its residents. It is described as the highest honour amongst all others conferred by the Newfoundland and Labrador Crown. Myles has spent his life advocating, improving access and services for the Deaf community. The Deaf community is blessed to have such a treasure in our midst.
