Anik Shooner is among the individuals that the Executive Committee of the Ville de Montréal will name to the Order of Montréal on May 16.

The Order of Montréal is Montréal’s highest honour and pays tribute to Montrealers who are committed to the community and who make an outstanding contribution to the city’s development and influence.

She is currently overseeing construction of 1 Square Phillips and the new National Bank head office.

In 2000, Shooner was made a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada in 2000. Chair for many years of Construction Specifications Canada [CSC]-Montreal Chapter, she is also a member of the Association des Architectes en pratique privée du Québec, president of the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, member of the International Women’s Forum–Canada and outgoing president of Les 40 et une.
