The medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to our country; at that same time, it serves to recognize deserving Canadians who have also devoted themselves to the well-being of community, family and country. Only 60,000 medals will be awarded throughout 2012.
At the announcement of the medal's creation in 2011, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said "the medal affords an opportunity for the Crown to recognize Canadians who have contributed a great deal to Canada and who have helped to define what it means to be Canadian; it is an opportunity to honour those who represent the full breadth of our society and who take to heart the idea of service to country".
Our commitment to accessibility in the workplace - more than just words.
