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 .

Let me begin by extending a welcome to Dr. Lisa MacKinnon, who has recently joined the staff of physicians providing health care to residents along the north shore. Lisa will bring the complement of physicians back up to four including Dr. Rob Bush, Dr. Dan MacDonald and Dr. Michael Glasgow.

Residents have been patient and sometimes frustrated with the speed of the recruitment process, however, I do want to congratulate all those who continue their efforts and who were successful in bringing Lisa to the community.

 As the MLA for Colchester North, I want Lisa to know that Tatamagouche is one of the most progressive communities in the province. Population is growing, new businesses are starting, a new school is soon to open, and during the summer months the population doubles when cottagers arrive for the summer season.

This is a community that has once again, in the most recent past, joined together to support and help each other. The success of the community is built on this very foundation.

The Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital continues to provide quality health care through their collaborative model. Individual physicians attend to their patient’s needs in a highly professional manner. This combination of facilities, health care staff, including nurse practitioner, registered nurses, technicians and other staff, provide ongoing support for the physicians as they deliver quality health care. I know that Lisa will become a part of that delivery model and bring her expertise to the team.
