Call for Nominations for the Veterans Ombudsman’s Commendation

Ottawa - July 5, 2012

The Veterans Ombudsman’s Commendation is awarded to an individual or group who has made an outstanding contribution to the Veterans community. I feel that it is important to recognize the extraordinary efforts of these individuals, as they are often the ones who work tirelessly to bring issues to light and provide a foundation for positive change for Veterans.

At this time, I am seeking nominations for this year’s Veterans Ombudsman’s Commendation. I invite you to nominate any individual, group, business or association that has made an outstanding contribution to the well-being of Veterans and their families.  More information on the criteria and nomination process is available on our Web site.

The deadline for submission of nominations is August 10, 2012.  The Veterans Ombudsman’s Advisory Committee will review the nominations, and provide me with recommendations.

If you would like to nominate an individual or group, please complete the nomination form, including a brief summary of why the candidate is deserving of the Veterans Ombudsman’s Commendation.  The completed form can be sent by mail, fax or electronically:
