Celebrating British Columbia
Provincial honours and awards are a memorable and distinctive way for the government of British Columbia to thank and pay special tribute to those British Columbian's whose lives exemplify excellence and achievement of the highest order.
On the second Monday of February, British Columbians celebrate Family Day, taking extra time to enjoy activities with their loved ones. In 2018, Family Day falls on Monday, February 12.
Each year, the Province celebrates organizations that have made outstanding contributions to British Columbia’s transportation system.
British Columbia’s historic places – buildings, structures, landscapes, historic districts and other places of heritage value – are crucial to our understanding and appreciation of the identity and character of our communities. By conserving and celebrating these places, we contribute to the future of our communities.
B.C. residents may receive congratulatory messages from officials for significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
More than 220 projects in 150 communities throughout British Columbia are receiving a total of $7.6 million in B.C. | Canada 150 grants.
