Some other awards that he has been favoured with in Canada are the Companion to the Order of Canada Honour of Merit and the Governor General’s Award. The list continues as he is highly regarded as a representative of Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame as well as Canada’s Walk of Fame. In 2012 because of his impressive part in delineating the 1960’s and ‘70’s folk and pop music, he entered The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.
