The ribbon in the Diamond Jubille medal has an arrangement of the blue, red and white colours found in the 1953 Coronation Medal, the 1977 Silver Jubilee Medal, and the 2002 Golden Jubilee Medal. The medal was designed by the Canadian Heraldic Authority and is composed of nickel silver. It was manufactured by the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa. Upon receiving an allocation of 38 medals, CCA worked with its members and partner associations to nominate deserving individuals from across the country.
“The Canadian construction industry is made up of individuals from coast-to-coast-to-coast whose contributions to their community have helped build a better Canada,” said John Schubert, chair of the CCA. “At CCA, we were delighted to learn of a number of individuals from our industry who received Diamond Jubilee medals because of the tremendous work they have done, not just in our industry, but with other organizations and associations across the country.”
