A new commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012
celebrations of the 60
th
anniversary of Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada. The
Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for
Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At
the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and
achievements by Canadians. Persons who receive the medal are
recognized as Canadians who, like her Majesty, have dedicated
themselves to service to their fellow citizens, their community
and their country.
