Last call for good citizen nominations

This is the first year government will formally honour B.C.’s most community-minded citizens

Honours and Awards Secretariat

Good citizens are the unsung heroes of our communities. Help us recognize the exceptional citizens in your community by nominating them for the new Medal for Good Citizenship by Oct. 2, 2015.

The nomination deadline has been extended to ensure British Columbians have more time to consider the people in their community, workplace, family or circle of friends who dedicate their time and energy to the greater good.

This is the first year government will formally honour B.C.’s most community-minded citizens: the people working in non-profits, volunteering their free time and continuously striving to make their community a better place. The Medal of Good Citizenship reflects their generosity, service, acts of selflessness and outstanding contribution to community life.

Help us recognize these standout citizens by nominating those who dedicate their time and passion without expectation of reward. British Columbians of any age can be nominated for this award and good citizenship takes many forms – from a community hero who stands up for the rights of vulnerable citizens to a life-long volunteer who gives their time to a charitable cause.

All nominations must be submitted to the Honours and Awards Secretariat office in Victoria by Friday, Oct. 2, 2015. An independent selection committee will consider nominations and make recommendations. Successful nominees will be recognized at a special ceremony hosted by government in late 2015.
