Gabriel Dumont Institue

Order of Gabriel Dumont

The Order of Gabriel Dumont is awarded by the Gabriel Dumont Institute to a small number of persons who have served the Métis of Canada with distinction. The award is made without regard to ethnicity.

The Order of Gabriel Dumont Gold Medal recognizes those who have distinguished themselves with outstanding service to the Métis, usually based on lifetime achievements and service.

The Order of Gabriel Dumont Silver Medal honours those who have made a significant contribution to the Métis.

As part of its 30th anniversary celebration in 2010, the institute introduced the Order of Gabriel Dumont Bronze Medal award. This award honours GDI students who have distinguished themselves through their perseverance, community involvement, and overall student performance.

The award is presented in the form of a medallion and a certificate signed by the officers of the institute over the seal, which enrolls the recipient in the order.

RECIPIENTS

In the past, the Order has been presented at the time of the institute’s annual meeting.

Previous recipients include author and educator Maria Campbell; local historian and farmer R. James Larocque; war veteran and community worker Vital Morin; Roger Carter, former emeritus dean of the University of Saskatchewan law school; Ethel Blondin, Member of Parliament for the Western Arctic; and Clovis Regnier, an early political organizer of the Métis.
