News Release


Please take time to consider nominating a worthy individual in Nipissing for the Order of Ontario, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli urged today.

“This is the province’s highest award, and simply being nominated is an honour,” Fedeli said.

The deadline for nominations is March 16, 2013, although nominations received after this date will be considered the following year.

Nominees must be residents or former long-term residents of Ontario and they must be living at the time of nomination, but do not need to be a Canadian citizen.

No elected federal, provincial or municipal official may be appointed to The Order of Ontario while in office, and the Order is not awarded for acts of bravery.

All nominations are considered by an Advisory Council that recommends the most outstanding nominees to the Lieutenant Governor-in-Council (Lieutenant Governor of Ontario).

The Lieutenant Governor of Ontario honours those chosen for appointment to The Order at an annual investiture ceremony, and appointees are presented with The Order of Ontario insignia and receive a certificate and lapel pin.

Further details can be obtained by calling Fedeli’s North Bay constituency office at 165 Main St. W. at (705) 474-8340, or online at
