Provincial employees were honoured this afternoon (as part of Public Service Week celebrations) for going above and beyond in delivering programs and services for all Manitobans at the 16th Annual Manitoba Service Excellence Awards.
Manitoba Premier, Greg Selinger and MGEU President, Michelle Gawronsky were among the hundreds on hand at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg to honour the efforts, hard work and dedication of Manitoba Government civil servants who deliver service excellence every day of the year.

- Service Excellence Individual Award – Susan Turbett, Jobs and the Economy
- Service Excellence Team Award – Manitoba Municipalities Online Implementation Team
- Partnership Award – Subdivision Review, Joint Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

“It's so very important that we take the time to celebrate and recognize the people who provide the valuable public services Manitobans enjoy each and every day,” says Gawronsky. “Thank you to all of the nominees for their hard work and dedication and congratulations to this year’s recipients."
