Michel Jean, Walter Boudreau, Jan Rok Achard, Gaston Bellemare, Dulcinée Langfelder, Tivi Etok and Eudore Belzil complete the list of new members, unveiled on Tuesday.

Each will receive the title of Companion or Companion of the Arts and Letters of Quebec.

Some 125 personalities wear the insignia of the Order to date. Recommendations for the appointment of new Companions and Companions are made by the Council of the Order of Arts and Letters. This year, the jury was made up of Myriam Achard, Claude Deschênes, Nadia Myre, Jack Robitaille and Louise Warren. The insignia ceremony will take place on June 6, at the Studio-Théâtre des Grands Ballets.
