Alan Gotlib, C.M.Dr. Allan Gotlib, director of Research Programs and editor of the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association has been awarded the Order of Canada for his work developing the profession’s research capacity.

The Governor General announced this year’s recipients last Friday, June 29th.

Dr. Gotlib has been named a Member of the Order of Canada. The Member designation recognizes achievements in a particular field, in this case health.

The Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest civilian honours, was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to community and service to the nation. Over the last 45 years, more than 5,000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.

Allan’s work on behalf of the profession for more than two decades has been groundbreaking. He has facilitated the establishment of university-based chiropractic professorships and research chairs across the country, he serves as executive vice-president of the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation, and has been pivotal in creating the profession’s research Consortium.

Dr. Gotlib has held many Committee positions including Executive Committee for the Canadian Cochrane Network and Center, CIHR President’s Voluntary Sector Committee, president of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario, Transitional Council of the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, Deputy Judges Council in Ontario, and bencher on the Law Society of Upper Canada.

He is a past full professor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and maintains membership in the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and the Canadian Pediatric Society.

In 2006, he received the Chiropractor of the Year award from the Ontario Chiropractic Association, the highest award given by the association in Ontario. In 2007, he received the Canadian Chiropractic Association Medal of Merit, the highest award given by the profession in Canada and, in 2007 he received the Homewood Professorship from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, its highest academic award.

  • Wow! Do you think that could ever happen in the U.S.?

    Russell,

    The reason that Dr. Gotlib was awarded the Order of Canada is because he put aside professional or personal aspirations for the betterment of society. That is what the Order of Canada is about. If there is someone in the US in the profession that is deserving of this type of distinction I would hope that there is a formal way to recognize this.

    best of luck
