Call-out for ‘Good Citizens’

Nominate someone for the Medal of Good Citizenship, a new award honouring British Columbia's unsung heroes.

They’re the unsung heroes of our city – good people who work to make their family, workplace, neighbourhood or community a better place.

They deserve recognition. For the first time, the provincial government is formally honouring B.C.’s most community-minded citizens.

There’s still time to nominate someone for Medal of Good Citizenship, an award that reflects the recipient’s generosity, service, acts of selflessness and outstanding contribution to community life.

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

For more information on nominating someone in your community, see www.gov.bc.ca/medalofgoodcitizenship.
