Submitting a Nomination

Nominations are accepted year-round.  The person submitting the nomination must sign nomination forms.  If more than one nomination is submitted for the same nominee, only the first nomination received will be considered.

All information provided is confidential and exclusively for the use of the Selection Committee. We ask that you not inform the nominee of his or her nomination. We ask this because of the volume of nominations we expect to receive and the fact that the medal cannot be awarded to all nominees.

The completed nomination form, description of achievement, testimonial letters, and any supporting material must be submitted electronically as one package by email to the Honours and Awards Secretariat at  For alternate submission options please call the Honours and Awards Secretariat at 250.387.1616.
