November 10, 2016 – Call for Nominations
VICTORIA - The Province is seeking nominations for its newest provincial honour, the Medal of Good Citizenship, which recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of their communities.
“In the last year we recognized 21 individuals and two communities with the Medal of Good Citizenship,” said Premier Christy Clark. “They came from different backgrounds, in communities throughout B.C. - but they all have one thing in common: they have stepped up to make their community better. And as we will see in the next round of nominations, they are not alone.”
