Tonight, 10 of Saskatchewan’s best will be invested with the province’s highest honour, the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty will invest the 2024 recipients at a formal ceremony in Regina.

“Each one of this year’s honourees earned this prestigious award through years of effort dedicated to the betterment of their communities and our province,” Mirasty said. “I am sincerely grateful for their commitment and contributions. It is my privilege to recognize these remarkable recipients and offer them my wholehearted congratulations.”

The 2024 Saskatchewan Order of Merit recipients are:

The Saskatchewan Order of Merit was established in 1985 to celebrate excellence and achievements by Saskatchewan citizens. Today’s recipients join the 272 individuals who have been invested with the Order in appreciation of their significant contributions in areas such as the arts, agriculture, business and industry, community leadership, occupations or professions, public service, research and volunteer service. The Saskatchewan Order of Merit is recognized in the Canadian Honours System and members of the Order are entitled to use the post-nominal letters S.O.M.
