Nominations Open for Province's Outstanding Volunteers

Released on August 15, 2016

Today Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield encouraged residents to nominate outstanding volunteers for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.  The 2016 nomination period will be open until October 18.

“Have you ever wondered how you can honour a special person in your community, your workplace, or your volunteer organization who has made outstanding contributions?” Solomon Schofield said.  “Our province created the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal to enable us to pay tribute to those individuals who merit public recognition for their remarkable generosity.  I encourage you to consider nominating a deserving individual this year, so that we can thank them and celebrate their work.”

The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995 to recognize volunteers and those who demonstrate exceptional community involvement.  Selected recipients will receive the Volunteer Medal from the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony at Government House in Regina in the late spring of 2017, during the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada.

Nominees must be current or former long-term residents of the province and Canadian citizens.  Nominations are not accepted posthumously.  Groups and organizations are ineligible to be nominated, along with sitting members of Parliament, the Legislature or the judiciary.

To date, 184 people have received the award for their contributions to their communities.

The province strives to recognize individuals and groups that make Saskatchewan an even better place to live.  Nomination calls are also open for the 2017 Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the 2016 Premier’s Service Club Awards, and this year’s Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Public Service.
