Michael Mantha, MPP Algoma-Manitoulin.

Throughout my years of service as MPP for Algoma-Manitoulin, I have always been so very impressed with the number of citizens that we have in this riding who make incredible contributions as leaders and helpers in our communities.  My office receives notification of the multitude of individuals that selflessly serve to make our communities better places to live. I am always so proud to highlight the contributions of some of these individuals in the Ontario Legislature when opportunity arises.


As well I want to bring to your attention that there are also opportunities to recognize such outstanding individuals through the Ontario Honours and Awards Secretariat. One such program is the Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship.  This medal was established in 1973 as a means to recognize exceptional, long-term efforts of special citizens in our communities. The medal is presented by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario at a special ceremony at Queen’s Park.


Any resident of Ontario can nominate someone for the Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship. To do so, submit a completed form with your nominee’s information that includes:
