Saskatchewan Order of Merit Nomination

Downloadable nomination Form with ability to fill in and save on line

Nomination criteria
Any Canadian citizen who is a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan is eligible for nomination for the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. Nominations cannot be accepted for elected members of Parliament or the Legislature or members of the judiciary who are still holding office. Organizations are not eligible, only individuals. Posthumous nominations are accepted within one year of the date of death.

While nominations are accepted for volunteer or community service, this is only one field of endeavour among many recognized by the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. If your nominee's activities are primarily in the area of community service as a volunteer, we recommend that you consider nominating them for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.

Any individual or group can submit nominations. The Saskatchewan Honours Advisory Council recommends recipients based entirely on the information submitted with the nomination.

Completing the nomination form
Only one nomination form is required per nominee. Please provide your complete mailing address and telephone number as well as the nominee's. In the summary statement on the form, explain briefly the reasons you are nominating this person.

Support letters
Please provide three to six letters from others in support of the nomination, explaining why your nominee is worthy of this honour. Do not exceed six letters. They must be on 8-1/2 x 11" paper, typed or clearly hand-written in dark ink.

Additional Information
You may provide material in support of your nomination, including an expanded statement of your reasons for the nomination (if the space on the form does not suffice), a biography of the nominee, and/or a list of his or her achievements. Please ensure that this material is succinct and directly relevant to the nomination. All support materials must be on 8½ x 11" paper, typed, reproduced or clearly hand-written in dark ink. Please do not send cassettes, videotapes, compact discs, photographs, albums or newspaper clippings (unless photocopied onto 8-1/2 x 11" paper) as they will be discarded.

Sending your nomination
Nominations are accepted year-round; the deadline is July 5. Nominations received after this date will be held over for consideration the following year.

Send your nomination form and support materials to us by mail or courier, or deliver in person to the address on the form. Nomination forms must be signed by the person submitting the nomination. We cannot accept nominations by fax or email.

All information provided to us is confidential and exclusively for the use of the Honours Advisory Council. We ask that you not inform the nominee of his or her nomination.
