It’s time for someone exceptional in your community to be considered for the province’s highest honour

It’s time for someone exceptional in your community to be considered for the province’s highest honour – the Order of B.C. – which recognizes outstanding achievement and distinction in a variety of fields.

Since its inception in 1989, the Order of B.C. has recognized  370 British Columbians from various sectors and regions of the province.

“For 26 years, we have recognized the outstanding contributions and  achievements of our citizens with the Order of B.C., our  province’s highest honour,” said Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon.

“I encourage you to nominate  those individuals in your community whose leadership and passion for the  betterment of humanity contribute to our quality of life in British  Columbia and beyond.”

An independent advisory council, chaired by the chief justice of B.C., will consider nominations, and successful nominees will be  recognized at a special ceremony hosted at Government House.

Nomination forms and submission instructions are available by e-mail: at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca, telephone at 250-387-1616 or online at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca/.

All nominations must be submitted to the Honours and Awards Secretariat office in Victoria by March 6.
