Five outstanding Nova Scotians were honoured for their lasting contributions to the province. Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant, chancellor of the Order of Nova Scotia, was joined by Finance Minister Maureen MacDonald, on behalf of Premier Darrell Dexter, and Viola Robinson, chair of the Order of Nova Scotia Advisory Council, to invest the recipients into the order at the annual ceremony.
Those being recognized today join not only the distinguished
membership of the Order of Nova Scotia, they also become a part of the history of our province. They join an extensive lineage of proud Nova Scotians who have been recognized by the Crown.
Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant, chancellor of the Order of Nova Scotia
For over a decade, we have recognized the extraordinary achievements and contributions of individuals by investing them into the Order. Each member stands as a shining example for us to follow and they have truly made Nova Scotia a better place to live.
Finance Minister Maureen MacDonald, on behalf of the premier
This year's recipients have made lasting and enduring contributions to our communities through their careers, their philanthropy, and their dedication to improving the lives of their fellow Nova Scotians. Our nominations for the provincial order continue to be among the highest in the country and I encourage all Nova Scotians to continue to nominate, and re-nominate people they feel are deserving.
Viola Robinson, chair of the Order of Nova Scotia Advisory Council
