Nominate A Deserving Citizen For The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.

“Our province is well known for our outstanding volunteers,” Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty said.  “The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal allows us to recognize the generosity of those who give their time to improve the lives of others.  I encourage everyone to nominate an exceptional volunteer for this provincial honour.”

Saskatchewan has the highest rate of volunteerism in the country.  The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995 as a means to formally recognize the selfless devotion of the province’s volunteers, and as a way to present role models to Saskatchewan citizens.  Nominees must be a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan.  Any individual or group can submit a nomination, but nominations are not accepted for organizations.

The nomination deadline is October 18, 2019.  Recipients of the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal will be awarded their medals by the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony in the Spring of 2020.
