The provinces of Canada each have an honours system consisting of orders and awards to honour their citizens for actions or deeds that benefited their local community or province. Each province sets their own rules on eligibility and the award criteria and also how each medal is presented. Most of the orders allow for the recipient to wear their orders in public, and most grant the recipients the use of post-nominal letters in their names.
