There have been 200 appointments to the Saskatchewan Order of Merit since its inception in 1985.

Established in 2003, this award is presented to members of Saskatchewan's public service (individuals, groups or teams) who have made outstanding on-the-job contributions to the government and citizens of the province.  The Premier's Award is a way to recognize, celebrate and take pride in the achievements of our province and people.

Criteria and selection
Active employees of government ministries, some treasury board Crown corporations, boards, commissions and agencies are eligible for nomination.  Recipients are people who provide exceptional levels of quality service to clients or the public, develop innovative ideas, or demonstrate extraordinary leadership in performing their daily tasks.

An independent selection committee recommends three to six recipients (individuals or groups/teams) from the nominations received.

Recipients receive a pewter trophy and a lapel pin bearing the Saskatchewan coat of arms with the provincial motto Multis e gentibus vires (From many peoples strength), and a certificate to recognize their achievement.  The award is presented by the Premier.
