The office of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, in partnership with the BC Achievement Foundation, has announced the third year of the British Columbia Reconciliation Award, recognizing individuals and organizations who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, integrity, respect and commitment to furthering Reconciliation or inspiring others to continue Reconciliation efforts.
This award celebrates the promise of a shared path to Reconciliation through the incredible work of leaders from all over British Columbia, whose commitment to recognizing past injustices and healing those wounds will lead us all to a brighter future. A selection committee for the award will include representation by Indigenous Elders, BC First Nations leadership and government partners.
Consider and reflect on the efforts of the Elders, leaders, and neighbours in your community who have strived to further Reconciliation. The nominations process is open to any individuals and organizations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous identity who have shown exemplary dedication to asserting truth and Reconciliation initiatives. You are encouraged to read the stories of last year’s recipients, with the hope their incredible work will inspire you to nominate the brightest in your own communities.
Nominate an individual or organization using the BC Reconciliation Award nomination form on the BC Achievement Foundation website. The nomination period will close on Jan. 20.
