Only acts of bravery that occurred on or after Jan. 1, 2007 will be considered under the Nova Scotia Medal of Bravery Act. Nomination forms are available at Access Nova Scotia centres, offices of members of the legislative assembly, and on the Medal of Bravery website at www.gov.ns.ca/bravery. The deadline for nominations is May 1. An advisory panel, chaired by former Chief Justice of Nova Scotia Constance Glube, will select this year’s medal recipients.
