Up to 10 individuals will be inducted into the Order this year in recognition of remarkable contributions to their community, the province and beyond.

Nominations are accepted year-round, but must be received by Feb. 15 to be considered for investiture this year. Nominations not selected in 2021 will be considered for up to three years.

Nominees must be Canadians citizens currently residing in Alberta and, if selected, must be able to attend the investiture ceremony. People cannot nominate themselves, their spouse or a member of their immediate family.
