About the 1 in 1000 Medal

The award
We are seeking a sponsor for two medals with a generous stipend to be awarded annually at a James McGregor Stewart ceremony in Halifax. One medal to a person from the region; another to a person from from anywhere in Canada.

Purpose
To salute advocates who have brought special recognition to the community of persons with disabilities, or for meritorious achievement of a person with disabilities in any field.

Eligibility
Is limited to Canadians with disabilities as broadly defined in the regulations of Revenue Canada. Nominees must be 18 years or older. Employees of government agencies which directly affect the situation of persons with disabilities are generally ineligible.

Nomination
Nominators should submit a letter of recommendation. The deadline for receipt of nominations is April 1.

Selection
Is done by a committee consisting of four directors of the James McGregor Stewart Society.

Conditions
In most circumstances, recipients must be present at the award dinner. The stipend is to support travel or study.
