Meritorious Service Medal

February 9, 2019


Meritorious Service Decorations are given to recognize contributions in any field, from advocacy and health care services to research and humanitarian efforts. Recipients have tackled poverty in their community, improved education opportunities for children in Canada and Abroad, or raised awareness of important causes and issues.


Kathy Lucking has been awarded the Meritorious Service Medal for her work in Madagascar. The Meritorious Service Decorations (Civil Division) enable the Governor General, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen and All Canadians, to recognize outstanding accomplishments that set an example for others to follow and bring benefit to our country.


Her Excellency, the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada will make the presentations at the Citadelle in Quebec City on February 14, 2019.
