Order of B.C. nominations now open

Nominations for the province’s highest recognition of excellence and lifetime achievement, the Order of British Columbia for 2014, are now being accepted.

“The Order of British Columbia is the province’s most prestigious accolade and gives us the opportunity to recognize the outstanding works of individuals in our communities who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to make all our lives better,” said Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor and Chancellor of the Order of British Columbia in announcing the nominations.

Any person or group is welcome to nominate a deserving individual as candidate for appointment to the Order of British Columbia.

Nomination forms are available from the Honours and Awards Secretariat office at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca (250 387-1616), or submit online at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca/nominations.

Nominations and letters of support for the Order of British Columbia must be received by March 7 at the secretariat’s office 1st floor, 548 Michigan Street, Victoria, V8V-1S2 or via email at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca, to be considered this year.

Nominations received after this will be included in the selection process for the next year.

A dinner and special ceremony of recognition will be hosted later this year by Lt.-Gov. Guichon at Government House for recipients and invited guests.

The Order of British Columbia was established in 1989. Since its inception, 345 British Columbians have been honoured.
