Ronald Duhamel Award

Officially launched in March 2005, the Prix Ronald-Duhamel – Ronald Duhamel Award was created to recognize an employee or a group of employees of a governmental or quasi-governmental body at the federal, provincial or municipal level for distinguished service to Manitoba’s Francophone community.

This biennial Award is a joint initiative of the Société de la francophonie manitobaine, the Federal Government, the Manitoba Francophone Affairs Secretariat, and the Manitoba Association of Bilingual Municipalities (AMBM).

In 2023, the Prix Ronald-Duhamel – Ronald Duhamel Award was awarded to Yvette Deveau for her leadership in developing projects of lasting importance at Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) for the delivery of French language services to the province’s Francophone community.
