Nova Scotians Receive Platinum Jubilee Medal
Friday, August 5, 2022
On August 4th, more than 60 Nova Scotians were awarded with The Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Medal in recognition of significant service to the province. The medal recipients represent a broad cross-section of Nova Scotians who have contributed to diverse fields and organizations, particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Her Majesty’s reign embodies the importance of commitment to one’s community, and the Platinum Jubilee Medal honours those who have demonstrated an unwavering dedication to their professions and the wellbeing of the province,” said Lt-Gov. LeBlanc.
This was the largest investiture ever held by the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. It was also the largest post-COVID investiture in the country.
The Queen approved the design of the Platinum Jubilee Medal in June 2022. Over the coming months, it will be awarded to 5,000 Nova Scotians nominated by MLAs, businesses, organizations and residents. The Government of Nova Scotia established the award program in March 2022.
