A volunteer with the first-aid service St. John Ambulance since 2010, she received her recognition during a ceremony June 23 in the Senate chamber in Ottawa. The order honours the contributions made by members, who collectively account for more than a million hours of service to their communities across Canada each year.

In addition to her work of ensuring the safety of attendees at events, Chan also developed a database to help event organizers and volunteers incorporate notes taken from previous years to improve the planning of their events.
