In Canada, six provinces instituted their own Platinum Jubilee Medals: Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan. It is the first time in Canadian history that a royal occasion has been commemorated with provincial medals.
Queen Elizabeth II was the longest reigning monarch in British history and the second-longest reigning monarch in world history, so the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal holds a distinct honour.
Several residents of the Albert Riding were recipients of the NB Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal presented by Hon. Mike Holland, MLA Albert. Each person who received the award has been part of the community in many ways. The award honours the extraordinary contribution they have made to their community, the Province of New Brunswick and the country. The honours, like Her Majesty, show dedication and service to the benefit of others, which are truly remarkable and appreciated by the Honourable Brenda L. Murphy, O.N.B - Lieutenant Governor and Premier Blaine M. Higgs.
