Catherine O’Hara OC, that’s the new designation for one of Canada’s most enduring funny ladies.

She received the initials, and her medal, and the little pin many proud Canadians wear, after being invested into the Order of Canada.

“A cultural trailblazer”

The honour, which recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation, was created in Canada’s centennial year, 1967.

O’Hara is still known and loved for all her wacky and wonderful characters on the much-loved SCTV, television series.

But most recently she’s been entertaining us with her hilarious portrayal of  “Moira” on Schitt’s Creek, the TV series Eugene Levy created and stars in with his son Dan.

Eugene Levy is also an SCTV alumnus, and a man with whom O’Hara has shared many top billings in over 40 years of often working together.

The two starred in the 1996 movie, Waiting for Guffman, and then in 2000, Best in Show.

Described as “a cultural trailblazer” during the ceremony at Rideau Hall today, O’Hara was invested along with 41 other remarkable Canadians.

One Saturday early this summer, five members of the cast of the sketch-comedy show “SCTV,” Canada’s answer to “Saturday Night Live,” which aired between 1976 and 1984, assembled at the London Hotel, in midtown. They were there to meet Martin Scorsese, who is making a documentary about “SCTV” for Netflix. The plan was for an on-camera conversation, to be conducted in the hotel’s penthouse suite, but when the cast arrived, at 7 p.m., Scorsese hadn’t yet shown up. They were escorted to a small sitting room, where they lounged on hotel-style furniture, drank wine, and picked at a spread of M&M’s and charcuterie.

“What are you thinkin’, honey?” Andrea Martin called over to Martin Short, who was stretched out on a sofa.

“Me?” Short said. “I can’t wait.” He rubbed his hands together impishly. “Martin Scorsese. He’s a fan.”

This was the first of two conversation scenes that Scorsese was planning to film. The second would take place five weeks later, before an audience at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre, and would be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Andrew Alexander, “SCTV” ’s producer and the longtime C.E.O. of the improv-comedy theatre the Second City, suggested that the cast might actually have two onstage conversations with Kimmel, so that Scorsese could gather more material.

“I think it’s a great idea,” Martin said.

“I think it’s insane,” Short said, taking a sip of white wine.

“Will we be showing the same clips?” asked Dave Thomas, who was sitting on a tall chair by a window.
