Phil McColeman MP office is accepting nominations to recognize contributions of residents in Brant.
A new commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
During the year of celebrations, 60 000 deserving Canadians will be recognized.
The Chancellery of Honours, as part of the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General, administers the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal program.
To be eligible for this honour, a person:
- Must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, but need not necessarily reside in Canada;
- Must have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or
- community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada and
- Must be alive on February 6, 2012. The medal can be awarded posthumously, as long as the recipient was alive on that date.
Individuals can be nominated through the appropriate partner organizations for this national honour, should one of these organizations be applicable to that individual.
