Do you know a British Columbian who has made a significant contribution to their community - either as a volunteer or in the course of their work? Individuals and groups can nominate a deserving individual who raises the quality and character of your community for a B.C. Community Achievement Award. The awards celebrate the spirit, imagination, dedication, and outstanding contributions of British Columbians to their communities. These include, but are not limited to, arts and culture, sports and recreation, multiculturalism, environment, healthcare, education, civic duty, business, community volunteerism, philanthropy and youth or seniors' leadership.

An advisory council of independent community leaders reviews the nominations and selects about 30 award recipients. In the spring, recipients attend a formal ceremony at Government House in Victoria. The lieutenant-governor and the premier of B.C. are invited to present the recipients with the B.C. Community Achievement medallion, a special commemorative medallion designed by renowned B.C. artist, Robert Davidson. Please consider making a nomination.
