The province says 5 trailblazing Nova Scotians who have made outstanding contributions to their province will be invested into the Order of Nova Scotia later in November.

Lt.-Gov. Arthur J. LeBlanc, Chancellor of the Order of Nova Scotia, announced the following recipients today:
-- Elizabeth Cromwell (posthumous), Birchtown, Shelburne Co.
-- Francis Dorrington, New Glasgow
-- Dr. Noni MacDonald, Halifax
-- Ann MacLean, Ingonish Beach
-- David McKeage (posthumous), Halifax

"As the Queen's representative in this province and as Chancellor of the Order of Nova Scotia, it is my honour and great pleasure to welcome and invest the newest appointees to the Order," said Lt.-Gov. LeBlanc. "These five outstanding Nova Scotians have worked hard to improve the lives of all our citizens through their exemplary dedication and commitment."

A release says the Order of Nova Scotia is the highest honour of the Province of Nova Scotia, and it recognizes those who have distinguished themselves in many fields of endeavour and have brought honour and prestige to themselves and their province.

99 recipients have been invested since the Order's inception in June 2001.

The 2019 recipients will be recognized at the 18th investiture ceremony on November 26, at Province House in Halifax.
