Nomination deadline looms for BC Reconciliation Awards

Nominations for the British Columbia Reconciliation Award close on Jan. 15. There’s still time to nominate individuals and organizations who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, integrity, respect and commitment to furthering reconciliation or inspiring others to continue reconciliation efforts.

This award, launched in partnership by the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and the BC Achievement Foundation, 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. We encourage you to nominate those brightest amongst them.

Nominate an individual or organization today using the BC Reconciliation Award nomination form.
