The Order of Gabriel Dumont – Call for Nominations




The Gabriel Dumont Institute invites you to nominate a person to the 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. Recipients of the Order of Gabriel Dumont need not be Métis.

The silver awards honour those who have made a significant contribution to the Métis. The gold awards recognize those who have distinguished themselves with outstanding service to the Métis. In past practice the gold medal has been awarded based on lifetime achievements and service.The Order is presented in the form of a medal (sterling silver or gold) and a certificate signed by the Officers of the Institute which enrolls the recipient in the Order.  The awards will be presented on February 7, 2020 at the Gabriel Dumont Institute’s 40th Anniversary Celebration and Cultural Conference.

Anyone may submit a nomination. Deadline for receipt of nominations is November 8, 2019.
