Nominations being accepted for Order of New Brunswick

The province is encouraging New Brunswickers to nominate individuals for the Order of New Brunswick.

The honour is awarded to celebrate the achievements of current or former outstanding New Brunswickers who have contributed to the economic, cultural and social fabric of the province.

As Canada celebrates the 150th anniversary of confederation, the order will be investing its 150th member.

The deadline for nominations is April 15, and the 2017 recipients will be announced on New Brunswick Day.
