Eligibility and Criteria
The Canadian Coast Guard Exemplary Service Medal, created on March 14, 1991, recognizes employees who have completed 20 years of service with an approved occupational group of the Canadian Coast Guard or with an organization supporting the Coast Guard, 10 years of which have been served in the performance of duties involving potential risk. Recipients must have worked on or after October 25, 1990. Exemplary service is characterized by good conduct, industry and efficiency.
Consideration is given only to periods of service for which no other long service, good conduct or efficiency decoration or medal has been awarded by the Crown. Unrecognized service in a profession whose members are eligible to be awarded another exemplary service medal by the Crown may count as service for the award of the Medal, when the requirement for 10 years of service is met. The Medal may be awarded posthumously.
A Bar, bearing a stylized maple leaf, may be awarded to a recipient of the Medal for each additional 10-year period of service with the Canadian Coast Guard or an organization supporting the Coast Guard.
