Countdown to deadline for Queen’s Jubilee medal nominations

The deadline for nominating an individual for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal is Sept. 1, 2012

OTTAWA – Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo sent out a reminder recently that the deadline for nominating an individual for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal is Sept. 1, 2012.

“There has been a tremendous response to the call for nominations. However, I want to make sure that everyone knows that the deadline is right around the corner and to get your nominations in now,” said McLeod.

All constituents may contact Mrs. McLeod’s office to recommend potential candidates for the medal. To be eligible for this honor, a person must:

– Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, but need not necessarily reside in Canada;

– Have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada; and

– Be alive on Feb. 6, 2012, the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne. The medal can be awarded posthumously, as long as the recipient was alive on that date.

For those wishing to nominate an individual for this honour please call the Kamloops office at 250-851-4991 or email cathy.mcleod.c1@parl.g.ca in order to have the nomination form sent to you.

 

All forms must be submitted by Sept. 1, 2012, in order for an independent panel to assess the nominations. The presentation of the Jubilee Medals will take place throughout the riding in October.
