Lieutenant Governor's Medal of Distinction in Public Administration


Since 1990, when the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal of Distinction in Public Administration was established in Ontario, outstanding recipients have been recognized for their exemplary leadership in this field throughout the province.

Over the years, these individuals have distinguished themselves through their endeavours that have made significant contributions in leadership roles within public administration in Ontario. The selection committee reviewing the nominations includes representatives from federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as well as the academic community.

The significant achievements of award recipients have made this province a better place to live. Public administration is an honourable calling, attracting those with a commitment to creating the best and most efficient ways of serving our communities at large.

As The Queen’s representative in Ontario, it is my great honour to annually present this Medal of Distinction in Public Administration.
