Nominate Someone for a Sask Order of Merit

Nominate Someone Today for the Province's Highest Honour

If you know somebody doing something excellent with their lives and you want to see that person recognized for it, your time is now.

Until November 1st, nominations will be accepted for the province's highest honour: The Saskatchewan Order of Merit

This was announced by Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy:

“The Saskatchewan Order of Merit enables us to recognize our most outstanding citizens. Our province is full of committed individuals who have made our home a better place.  I encourage everyone to consider nominating a deserving person for our highest honour.”

The Saskatchewan Order of Merit was established in 1985 with the purpose of recognizing great people for their excellence, achievements and contributions to the well-being of the province; whether that be cultural, social or economic.

Last year, some of the recipients were National Chief Perry Bellegarde, the author Gail Bowen and LGBT activist Neil Richards

Previous recipients have been selected for a wide array of different things. Some have made contributions to the arts, some to business and industry, and others agriculture and volunteer service.

Nominees must be current or former long-term residents of Saskatchewan. Any individual or group can submit a nomination, but the nomination must be for an individual, not an organization.  Posthumous nominations are accepted within one year of an individual’s date of death.

The recipients of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit will be invested by the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony in the spring of 2019.
