Thomas Molloy said.  “Whether it’s been through their leadership, the arts, activism or philanthropy, these men and women have enhanced their communities and Saskatchewan as a whole.  I offer my sincere congratulations to each of them and thank them for their contributions to our province.”

The 2018 recipients are:
  • National Chief Perry Bellegarde, Assembly of First Nations, Little Black Bear First Nation;
