Robert Godin of Godin Guitars has received the Order Of Canada Honour (C.M.) by the Governor General for his research and development activities in guitar manufacturing.

Established in 1967 by Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is the cornerstone of the Canadian Honours System and recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. The Order recognizes people in all sectors of Canadian society. Their contributions are varied, yet they have all enriched the lives of others and made a difference to this country.

Godin has been designing and building guitars for nearly 50 years, and has earned the reputation of being a global pioneer and a constant innovator in guitar manufacturing. He joins the ranks of many other remarkable Canadians in the Order of Canada, such as Jack Long (Long & McQuade), Randy Bachman, Alain Caron, Alex Lifeson, Céline Dion, Sarah McLachlan, Tom Cochrane and Leonard Cohen.
