Order of Ontario

Order of Ontario

OneChild is so excited to announce that our Founder, Cheryl Perera has been appointed to the Order of Ontario, Ontario’s highest civilian honour. 

In March 2020, Cheryl was awarded the Order of Ontario by Her Honour Elizabeth Dowdeswell, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, at a special ceremony at Queen’s Park. She received this amazing honour for her 18 year-long crusade against the sexual exploitation of children that she started when she was just 16 years- old.

The Order of Ontario is awarded to Ontario’s finest citizens who’ve made a lasting impact in the province, Canada, and beyond. Cheryl joins other inspiring individuals like Canada’s first female astronaut Roberta Bondar and Jean Augustine, the first black Member of Parliament. 

Cheryl’s recognition is a shining tribute to the power of youth as agents of change and highlights the importance of combating the sexual exploitation of children. We’re so proud of our founder
