Order of Manitoba nominees sought

Annual nomination deadline is Jan. 31

You have until Jan. 31 to nominate a friend or neighbour for induction into the Order of Manitoba.

The province’s highest honour, the awards annually recognize up to 12 deserving individuals.

The awards are open to Manitoba citizens or former residents of the province who have demonstrated excellence and achievement leading to the improvement of the social, cultural or economic well-being of Manitoba and its residents.

“There are unsung heroes in every corner of this great province who continuously go above and beyond for the greater good,” said Lieutenant-Governor Janice Filmon, chancellor of the Order of Manitoba. “Whether through volunteerism, philanthropy, or exhibiting excellence and achievement in any field of endeavour, their commitment to making Manitoba great inspires us all. It is up to all of us to participate and engage in this process.”

This year’s recipients will have the added distinction of receiving their award as part of Canada’s 150th birthday year celebrations.
