The City of Moose Jaw is encouraging residents to nominate deserving residents within the city, for the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal.
The government of Saskatchewan says in a press release, that the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal is being created to celebrate the 70th anniversary year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Accession to the Throng, which began on February 6, 2022.
“The medal is a tangible way for the province of Saskatchewan to honour Her Majesty for her service to Canada. A total of 7,000 medals will be awarded at ceremonies held throughout the province during the Platinum Jubilee year. The medal program will be the focus of the Government of Saskatchewan’s Jubilee year commemorations."
The province says the criteria for the medal are very broad, and recipients should be of all ages, and all walks of life, provided that they have made a contribution to society.
Three minimum criteria for the medal recipients are:
• They are a resident of Saskatchewan or have a link to Saskatchewan (at the time of the grant of the medal);
• They have made a contribution to Canada, Saskatchewan, or to a particular region or community; and
• They were alive on February 6, 2022, the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s Accession to the Throne.
