Government unveils Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal

February 27, 2012

Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal nominations are now being accepted by Lethbridge Member of Parliament Jim Hillyer.

Created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada on February 6, 1952, the medal will commemorate this rare and special event. The Diamond Jubilee Medals will recognize Canadians across the country who have built and continue to build this caring society through their service, contributions and achievements.

Should you wish to nominate an individual who you think is deserving of this honour, please print out and fill in the nomination form. You can also scan and e-mail the completed form to: hillyer@jimhillyer.com or fax it to: 403-380-4026, or we welcome you to drop the nomination form off at our constituency office: 255-8th Street, South.

To be eligible for this honour, a person must: 

  • Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, but need not necessarily reside in Canada; 
  • Have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada; and
  • Be alive on February 6, 2012, the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne. The medal can be awarded posthumously, as long as the recipient was alive on that date. 

The deadline for submitting all nominations to our office is March 31, 2012.

Please note: only nominations for constituents of the Lethbridge riding will be accepted to ensure that all MPs have the opportunity to represent their own constituents. You can find out your nominee’s representative by entering their home residence’s postal code at Elections Canada’s website: http://www.elections.ca/home.aspx.
