Each recipient receives a certificate, signed by the premier of his or her province or territory, as well as a Council of the Federation Literacy Award medallion.

“I am very pleased to recognize Annie today as a leader in the field of literacy. Annie has said that it was not until she was in her fifties that she understood the meaning of literacy – to read and write with comprehension – and that it was a moment of understanding that changed her entire world. Her journey is an inspiration to people of all ages,” said Cambridge Bay MLA Keith Peterson.
