Public nominations open for Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal
To mark the 70th anniversary of the accession to the Throne of Queen Elizabeth II, the Province established the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal.
Queen Elizabeth II passed on September 8, 2022, as Canada’s longest reigning Sovereign and the first to celebrate a platinum jubilee. The Queen devoted her life to serving the commonwealth and its people. To honour her commitment, Islanders are invited to make nominations for this medal.
“With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, it is more important than ever to recognize her life of service. This is a unique opportunity to recognize the many people who have contributed greatly to this province - it may be a first responder, front line worker, community volunteer, organizational leader, caregiver or anyone who meets the eligibility criteria.”
