Alberta Order of Excellence

The Alberta Order of Excellence (AOE) is the highest honour the Province of Alberta can bestow on a citizen.


Members of the Alberta Order of Excellence careers range from medicine, science, engineering, law, and business to politics, education, agriculture and the arts. The one thing all members have in common is that they have made an outstanding provincial, national, or international impact.

Thank you to CTV Two for the ongoing airing of the AOE member’s video montages across Alberta.
