Queen’s Medal for Champion Shot
The Queen's Medal for Champion Shot was originally created under the British Honours System. In June 1968, after the unification of the Canadian Forces, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II gave her approval for the granting in Canada of the British Queen's Medal for Champion Shot. However, it wasn't until 1991 that the Privy Council for Canada advised that there be created and instituted in Canada the Queen's Medal for Champion Shot. On August 28, 1991, Her Majesty approved the creation of the Queen's Medal for Champion Shot in Canada.
Two medals are awarded annually to the member of the Canadian Forces (Regular) and to the member of the Canadian
Forces (Reserve) or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who obtain the highest aggregate score in stages one and
two of the Queen's Medal Competition.
