Distinguished Co-Operator Award

Help us recognize the enormous contributions made by Nova Scotian co-operators to the economic and social well-being of our province…

Any Nova Scotian co-operator is eligible, including elected officials, individual members, and employees of co-operatives, credit unions, and caisse populaires. Nominees may be active or retired, or may be nominated posthumously.

The staff and board members of the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council are not eligible while serving with the organization.
Any co-operative, credit union and caisse populaire, or any individual member of these organizations in Nova Scotia may nominate a person for this award. Past nominations may be updated and resubmitted if the nominee was not an award recipient. Applications are held and considered for three (3) years.
Recipients will be chosen by the selection committee. Decisions of the selection committee are confidential and final. The number of awards to be presented will be determined by the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council or its appointed selection committee.
