CORNWALL, ON – Member of Parliament Eric Duncan (Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry) is pleased to announce the creation of a new program to celebrate local community leaders in honour of Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 years of selfless service to Canada and the Commonwealth.
While the current government did not create a similar program to Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee medals in 2012, many Members of Parliament have opted to create programs in their communities to recognize the hard work and achievements of deserving Canadians.
“Over the last two years, our community has faced significant challenges and hardships. Yet, in spite of these challenges, countless local residents came together to support their neighbours, friends and local organizations, all united by one common purpose: to make a difference,” said MP Duncan. “This program is a great way we can say thank you and recognize the many wonderful people for their contributions to our community.”
Duncan’s office is asking residents to submit nominations of deserving Canadians in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry who have made significant efforts to improve our community or our country. Nominations for this award are open to educators, artists, athletes, scientists, coaches, entrepreneurs, emergency responders, community volunteers, activity organizers, and other everyday Canadians striving to make their communities a better place.
Chosen recipients will be awarded a unique Queen’s Platinum Jubilee medallion and will be officially recognized at an award ceremony this fall.
Nomination details are available online at www.EricDuncanMP.ca/nominate. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, September 9th, 2022.
