B.C. looks for Good Citizenship Medal nominees

Successful nominees will be recognized at a special ceremony hosted by government later this year.

The B.C. government is looking for a few good men – and women.

It wants to recognize “exceptional citizens” for the new Medal for Good Citizenship.

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.

All nominations must be submitted by 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 and to nominate someone in your community, please go to  gov.bc.ca/medalofgoodcitizenship.
