The Amethyst Award presented Ontario Public Servants was established in 1993 and designed to recognize outstanding achievements by people, not programs, in the Ontario Public Service (OPS). These are people who have extended themselves, whether in creating a whole new way of delivering a service, developing time and money-saving technology, or showing extraordinary professionalism and care in performing their daily tasks.
The award is a lucite trophy featuring Ontario amethyst and bearing the award logo. Recipients are also presented with certificates (signed by the Secretary of Cabinet and the Premier) and a lapel pin.
