The commemorative Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal.

The office of the Governor General of Canada is now accepting nominations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, which pays tribute to Canada’s sovereign Queen Elizabeth II and her 60 years on the throne of England.

The commemorative medal was created to mark the anniversary as well as honour significant contributions and achievements made by Canadians. As many as 60,000 people will be recognized with the medal between now and next February.

Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp said that constituents are invited to submit nominations by going to www.randykamp.com and clicking the Diamond Jubilee icon. This will lead to an online registration form that can be sent to Kamp’s office.

“Thirty medals have been allocated for me to present and I look forward to recognizing exemplary Canadians who dedicate their time and efforts to bettering the lives of those around them, and making Canada stronger,” he said in a statement.

Nominations for the medal are open until December 2012. Approval of nominees by the Chancellery of Honours takes about two to four weeks, and once approved the Royal Canadian Mint sends a medal and information package to the recipient.

You can find more information on the medal, including the eligibility criteria, by logging on to the Governor General website.
