Premier's Message

Premier's Award of Excellence

As Premier of Nova Scotia, I am tremendously proud of our public servants and their commitment to deliver high quality programs and services to Nova Scotia families, communities and businesses every day.

Each year, there are also those public servants who exceed all expectations and do something truly exceptional. The Premier's Award of Excellence was established to recognize these individuals and teams for their outstanding achievement.

The award recognizes the exceptional work of public servants in seven main categories: innovation and creativity; client service delivery; collaboration and partnership building; diversity and inclusion; individual and team leadership; employee engagement; and fiscal sustainability.

If you know a public service employee or team that deserves recognition, I encourage you to nominate them for this annual award. Together let's recognize and celebrate some of the exceptional people and work that are making a positive difference in the lives of the people of Nova Scotia.
