Members of the Order of Manitoba

The Order of Manitoba, established by special legislation in 1999, is the highest honour of the Province of Manitoba. It recognizes people “who have demonstrated excellence and achievement in any field of endeavour benefitting in an outstanding manner the social, cultural or economic well-being of Manitoba and its residents.”

Twelve people are granted the award each year by the Lieutenant-Governor. Selections are made by an Advisory Council comprised of the president of one of Manitoba’s three universities and four people appointed by the provincial cabinet for a term of three years. Nominations are accepted.
