BC Reconciliation Award Nomination Deadline January 15

The Office of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, in partnership with the BC Achievement Foundation, is honoured to announce the launch of the British Columbia Reconciliation Award, recognizing individuals, groups and organizations who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, integrity, respect and commitment to furthering reconciliation or inspired others to continue reconciliation efforts. 
This award celebrates the promise of a shared path to reconciliation through the incredible work of leaders from all over British Columbia, whose commitment to recognizing past injustices and healing those wounds will lead us all to a brighter future. A selection committee for the BC Reconciliation Award will include representation by Indigenous Elders, BC First Nations leadership and government partners.

The Honourable Janet Austin, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, is deeply committed to strengthening the ever-evolving relationship between the Crown and Indigenous peoples. This commitment includes her participation in the actions that further reconciliation and her support of endeavours that promote truth and understanding, including this new award. 
The BC Achievement Foundation has several established programs honouring excellence and inspiring achievement throughout British Columbia, including the Indigenous Business Award and the Fulmer Award in First Nations Art. It is the hope of Judith Sayers, BC Achievement Foundation board member, that this award will not only recognize the truths of past wrongs but will also showcase examples of how to make things right, and inspire others to follow. 
Consider your community and the efforts of the Elders, leaders, and neighbours who strive to further reconciliation. The nominations process is open to any individuals and organizations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous identity who have shown exemplary dedication to asserting truth and reconciliation initiatives. We encourage you to nominate those brightest among us.

Reconciliation must take root in our hearts, within families, between generations, and throughout our communities. We look forward to supporting this award and its deeply meaningful goal of building our relationships with each other across cultures and social barriers.
