City of Moncton Seeking Nominations for Order of Moncton 2016


June 16, 2016

MONCTON – Once again, the City of Moncton is looking for nominations for its most prestigious and highest ranking honour: the Order of Moncton. Since 2010, this annual award recognizes and distinguishes nominated Monctonians for their significant contributions and outstanding achievements to Moncton’s social, cultural or economic fabric. 

“A community, in the true sense of the word, is built thanks to the efforts of many people, who leap into action and make things happen to enhance the world around them,” said Moncton Mayor Dawn Arnold. “Moncton’s reputation as a great place to live is a shared honour, which has been earned by those who contribute so generously and tirelessly to improving Monctonians’ quality of life. The Order of Moncton allows us to recognize these citizens, and express our utmost gratitude for their work.”

Nominations and letters of support must be submitted by Monday, September 12, 2016; forms may be obtained at City Hall, 655 Main Street, or online at moncton.ca. Nominees must be past or present, long-term residents of Moncton who have brought honour to Moncton on a national or international scale. Incomplete applications will not be considered, and it should be noted that elected representatives currently serving on Moncton City Council, the Provincial Legislature, the House of Commons, the Senate, and judges of any court are not eligible for nomination.

Recipients will be chosen by the Order of Moncton Selection Committee which is comprised of Council members, citizens and a staff advisory group. Recipients will be notified by October 21.

Past inductees are: Audrey Lampert, Raven Spanier and George Wybouw in 2015; Wes Armour, Aldéa Landry and Claude Roussel in 2014; Leonard H. Lockhart, Peter Sawyer and Bill Whalen in 2013; Marshall Button, Corinne Gallant and Ken MacLeod in 2012; Thea Borlase, Reuben Cohen and Maurice Henri in 2011; and Ralph Wilson Black, Claudette Bradshaw, Soeur Auréa Cormier and Larry Nelson in 2010.
