What is the JP St. Pierre Award

The JP St. Pierre Award is bestowed upon deserving individuals residing in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR).

This high municipal distinction aims to celebrate the exceptional contributions of individuals in the many areas of life within the UCPR, including arts and culture, business and professions, charitable work, health, education, public service, media and communications, sports, agriculture, the environment, or other areas contributing to the well-being of the UCPR’s citizens.

A maximum of two awards will be presented on an annual basis, during the UCPR Warden’s Banquet.


This award was created in 2015 in memory of Mayor St. Pierre.
