Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Manitoba)

The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (Manitoba) celebrates the 70th anniversary year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the Throne, which began on February 6, 2022.

The medal is a tangible way for the province of Manitoba to honour Her Majesty for her service to Canada. A total of 1,000 medals will be awarded at ceremonies held throughout the province during the Platinum Jubilee year. The medal program will be the focus of the Government of Manitoba's Jubilee year commemorations. Permission has been sought from the Office of the Governor General of Canada to have this medal included in the Order of Precedence with the other commemorative medals of the Canadian Honours System.
