As part of a commitment to community service, a Lieutenant Governor may extend honorary patronage to local organizations that help enrich the lives of Nova Scotians. This form of patronage derives from the concept of the Crown as the source of the highest honours and awards granted in our society.
The Lieutenant Governor presently grants honorary patronage to the following organizations: Honorary Patronage List.
The Lieutenant Governor does not initially offer patronage, an invitation must be extended by the organization.
