Bryan Tisdall, a longtime Steveston resident, travels to Ottawa Thursday to receive the honour in a ceremony with Canada’s governor general.

Tisdall has had a remarkable career contributing to science education in B.C., spending nearly two decades as CEO of Science World from 1997 to 2016. He never shied away from controversial exhibits and took the iconic False Creek orb from a floundering operation to a renowned not-for-profit that doesn’t rely on government funding for any ongoing support.

He came to Science World from a stint as general manager of Exhibition Place and the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. Before that, he worked as director of finance and administration for the Metropolitan Toronto Police and as director of planning and production services with TVOntario.
