Diamond Jubilee Medal - Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal

We thank everyone who submitted a nomination for the medal. Our movement is fortunate to have so many accomplished leaders who help improve the lives of people living with and affected by HIV. The Canadian AIDS Society is honoured to have been granted the privilege of sharing the medal with 30 members of the HIV community, who are among the 60,000 outstanding Canadians selected to receive this distinction in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the Throne.

The Canadian AIDS Society will be coordinating the presentation of the medals with the nominators of the recipients and will also be presenting some at its 2012 World AIDS Day Gala, to be held Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at the Château Cartier Hotel in Ottawa.

The eligibility criteria outlined that the successful candidate would have made a significant contribution to a province, territory, region or community; have distinguished themselves from others employed or involved in the same field; and is highly respected. The overall selection process led by CAS was both non-partisan and merit-based. A scoring system was utilized and a separate committee of the board was developed to select the 30 recipients. The committee itself was comprised of members of the board and one staff member of CAS, all of whom were not themselves nominees.

The criteria developed to score applicants was based on the following four areas: (1) number of years involved in the HIV/AIDS movement; (2) service at the local, provincial, regional and national levels; (3) innovation in response to HIV/AIDS; (4) improving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and (4) a dedicated commitment to the Greater Involvement of Persons Living with HIV/AIDS at the public policy level. These were deemed to be the most important aspects by which to identify our top community leaders to receive the honour.

While there are many deserving individuals and community champions throughout Canada, we received forty-one applications in total. The majority of nominations were presented by individuals representing a member organization where the applicant has made a significant contribution. CAS has the pleasure of honouring 30 individuals for their work and commitment to HIV/AIDS in Canada. It is not at all surprising that a number of the candidates chosen have been closely involved with CAS at some time in the past or are presently involved, demonstrating the quality and level of excellence of those who have and are guiding and informing the work of CAS.

We encourage all organizations to be involved in thanking those who have made significant contributions in our respective communities; it is thanks to their perseverance, dedication and inspiration that we are able to celebrate our many successes. As Margaret Mead noted, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

CAS would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all recipients receiving this honour and their contributions to the community-based HIV/AIDS movement. Our community is wide, vast and strong.

Médaille du jubilé de diamant de la reine Elizabeth II

Selon les critères d'admissibilité, le(la) candidat(e) devait avoir fait une contribution significative dans une province, un territoire, une région ou une communauté; s'être distingué des autres employés ou intervenants du domaine; et être hautement respecté. Non partisan, fondé sur le mérite et dirigé par la SCS, le processus de sélection incluait un système de pointage. Un comité distinct du conseil d'administration a été créé pour sélectionner les 30 lauréats - il était composé de membres du conseil d'administration et d'un membre du personnel de la SCS, qui n'ont pas été des candidats.

Le système de pointage était basé sur les quatre considérations suivantes : (1) nombre d'années d'implication dans le mouvement de lutte contre le VIH/sida; (2) service aux paliers local, provincial, régional et national; (3) innovation dans la riposte au VIH/sida; (4) amélioration de la vie des personnes vivant avec le VIH/sida; et (5) engagement à l'implication accrue des personnes vivant avec le VIH/sida dans les politiques publiques. Ces considérations étaient à notre avis les plus importantes dans la tâche d'identifier nos principaux leaders communautaires.

Au total, nous avons reçu 41 candidatures d'individus et de porte-étendards communautaires des quatre coins du Canada. Les mises en candidature ont été déposées en majorité par des représentants d'organismes auxquels les candidats ont fait des contributions significatives. La SCS est heureuse d'honorer ces 30 individus pour leurs efforts et leur engagement à la lutte contre le VIH/sida au Canada. Plusieurs d'entre eux ont déjà contribué à la SCS ou y sont affiliés, ce qui démontre la qualité et le degré d'excellence des individus qui guident et éclairent notre travail.

Nous invitons tous les organismes à remercier avec nous les individus qui ont fait d'importantes contributions à nos communautés; c'est grâce à leur persévérance, à leur dévouement et à leur motivation que nous célébrons autant d'histoires de succès. Comme l'affirmait Margaret Mead : « Ne doutez jamais qu'un petit groupe de citoyens réfléchis et engagés puissent changer le monde. De fait, c'est la seule chose qui ait jamais réussi. »

La SCS félicite tous les lauréats pour leurs médailles et leurs contributions au mouvement communautaire de lutte contre le VIH/sida. Notre communauté est vaste et solide.
