“These are correctional staff who have dedicated decades of public service to keeping the public safe, with the highest levels of compassion, integrity, and skill, in what is a very dynamic and challenging field,” Farnworth said.

“The resilience, care, and commitment these recipients have demonstrated in order to create better outcomes for individuals under their supervision is incredibly inspiring and admirable.”

The Corrections Exemplary Service Medal, created in 1984, was the second medal in Canada designed to recognize long and outstanding service in public-safety professions. The first was the Police Exemplary Service Medal, created in 1983.
