2019 Order of Nova Scotia Nominations !

PROTOCOL OFFICE--2019 Call for Nominations for Order of Nova Scotia
Nova Scotians are encouraged to nominate someone in their community for the Order of Nova Scotia.

The order is the province's highest honour and recognizes outstanding citizens for making significant and lasting contributions to their communities. Past recipients have included academics, athletes, volunteers, advocates and artists.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 15.
"The Order of Nova Scotia is a perfect means by which exemplary citizenship is recognized in this province," said Lt.-Gov. Arthur J. LeBlanc, Chancellor of the Order of Nova Scotia.

"Those people appointed to our province's highest honour have contributed to the well-being of their fellow citizens or have excelled in their field of endeavour and it is important that we recognize their tremendous efforts."

Since its creation in 2001, 99 recipients have been invested into the order, including ten posthumously. In 2018, a record 128 nominations were submitted.

"This honour reflects the appreciation we have for our fellow citizens who make outstanding contributions," said Premier Stephen McNeil. "I encourage Nova Scotians to think about those deserving of this honour and put forward their names for consideration."

Nomination forms are available at Access Nova Scotia centres, Province House in Halifax, MLA and MP offices, municipal offices and online at www.novascotia.ca/orderofnovascotia .

Nominations will be accepted by mail, fax or email. To renominate someone, a photocopy of the previous nomination package with a new nomination form may be submitted.

For more information, contact the Protocol Office at 902-424-2467, orderofnovascotia@novascotia.ca or visit www.novascotia.ca/orderofnovascotia .

It was my great pleasure to help ring in the new year than in the Village of Tatamagouche. I was happy to join community members and others at the New Year’s Levee on January 1, 2017. Something unique and special about this year’s Levee was that the Tatamagouche Fire Brigade and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 64 joined forces in the spirit of cooperation and hosted the Levee together. Lots of good food, drinks, friendship and positive attitude filled the room at the Legion. What a great way to wrap up 2016 and welcome 2017.

As I have stated many times, Tatamagouche is one of the most progressive communities in rural Nova Scotia and I am proud to represent the area in the Provincial Legislature. Tatamagouche is a community where good ideas become realities, whether it is new businesses establishing themselves in the community or existing businesses expanding; whether it is new school construction or successful doctor recruitment; whether it is the “one of its kind in Canada” – on land train or an ever growing cadet squadron, these are all projects and developments that have been driven by residents along the north shore. They all help to drive the economy of the area and to provide services and supports to residents and their families.

I have worked hard with the Department of Health and watched closely throughout the recruitment process and was very excited to hear that two locum doctors will be providing service two days a week until a newly recruited doctor is established permanently in the community. I want to thank Doctors MacDonald, Glasgow and Bush for providing emergency service to those in need since the retirement of Dr. Moss.

It is the strength of that Collaborative Care Practice with a team of doctors, nurse practitioner and nurses, as well as other medical support staff that give folks along the north shore the comfort of knowing that their health care needs can be met close to home. As your MLA, I thank you for your support in the past and look forward to a happy and prosperous 2017.
