A Canadian astronaut will fly on the first crewed Orion mission. NASA and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) announced Wednesday they had signed an agreement confirming Canada's participation in the Artemis program, highlighted by providing a robotic arm for the lunar Gateway. In return, Canada will get a seat on the Artemis 2 mission around the moon in 2023 and a later mission to the Gateway. CSA hasn't determined which of its four current active astronauts will be assigned to Artemis 2.
