(Brampton) - Regional Chair Emil Kolb today received the Golden Jubilee Medal of Queen Elizabeth II at a ceremony held at St. Anne’s School in the City of Brampton. The commemorative medal is awarded to Canadians who have made an active and significant contribution to their fellow citizens and community.

“I’m truly honoured to receive this special and prestigious medal,” said Regional Chair Kolb. “It’s a privilege to be able to serve the community I have lived in for the past 63 years.”

Recently elected to serve his ninth term as Chair of the Peel Police Services Board, Kolb is also a member of the Canadian Association of Police Boards, and a representative on the Central Ontario Smart Growth Panel.

As Regional Chair since 1991, Emil Kolb has been instrumental in building Peel’s strong reputation among municipal governments in Canada and continuing the tradition of quality, efficiency and excellent service for the citizens of Peel Region.

In municipal politics since 1970, Kolb served as Mayor of the Town of Caledon from 1985 to 1991, and as a Regional Councillor since the establishment of Regional Government in 1974.

The Golden Jubilee Medal is made of gold-plated bronze and carries the current Canadian effigy of The Queen. Approximately 46,000 medals will be distributed across Canada this year.

The Golden Jubilee marks the fiftieth anniversary of Her Majesty's reign as Queen of Canada.
