Nominations Open for the 2022 BC Reconciliation Award

Nominations are now open for the 2022 British Columbia Reconciliation Award, recognizing individuals, groups and organizations who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, integrity, respect and commitment to furthering reconciliation or inspired others to continue reconciliation efforts.

As Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, I have made Reconciliation one of the key themes of my mandate. This includes participation in promotion of public awareness of the ongoing journey of reconciliation.

The incredible number of nominations received for the first BC Reconciliation Award demonstrated how much important work is being done by British Columbians in support of Reconciliation. I am deeply honoured for the continued opportunity to recognize these exemplary individuals and organizations, with the hope their work will provide inspiration and guidance to current and future generations on the path of Reconciliation.

Get inspired by reading the stories of the 2021 recipients of the BC Reconciliation Award.

I am delighted to continue this partnership with the BC Achievement Foundation, whose work includes several established awards programs honouring excellence and inspiring achievement throughout British Columbia, including the Indigenous Business Award and the Fulmer Award in First Nations Art.

Learn more about reconciliation in Canada and British Columbia through the national Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the B.C. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act, and take part in this journey by nominating an individual or organization today using the nomination form on the BC Achievement Foundation website. The nomination period will close on January 15, 2021.
