On April 6, 2017, the Senate of Canada decided to issue 1500 commemorative bronze medals to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. The medals are expected to be ready for issue by Canada Day.
Senator Patterson has been allocated 12 medals to award to Nunavummiut who have made positive contributions to their communities.
We asked Nunavummiut to nominated Nunavut’s unsung heroes. 67 nominations were received and the recipients have been selected.  We will be announcing them here and on social media shortly!
