Order of British Columbia honours excellence

 

The Order of British Columbia offers British Columbians a golden opportunity to take part in the public recognition of individuals who demonstrate outstanding achievement, excellence and distinction in their particular fields of endeavour.

Nominations are now being received for the 2014 Order of British Columbia. If you know anyone in our communities who have truly led by example, I encourage you to nominate them for the Order of British Columbia. Nominations must be received by the first Friday in March to be considered this year. Nominations received after this will be included in the selection process for the next calendar year. An independent Advisory Council, chaired by the Chief Justice of British Columbia will consider nominations.

Since 1990, 345 British Columbians from all walks of life and many regions of the province have received the Order of British Columbia, the Province’s highest award, including First Nations Advocate Rose Charlie and Author William Patrick Kensella from the Chilliwack-Hope Riding.

Nomination forms are available from the Honours and Awards Secretariat in Victoria, by calling 250-387-1616, or online at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca.
