British Columbia's communities are shaped by the people who live in them, and especially by the contributions of extraordinary individuals.

The BC Community Achievement Awards celebrate British Columbians who go above and beyond in their dedication and service to others and who devote time and energy to making their communities more caring, dynamic, beautiful, healthy, and unique. They inspire by their example.

The BC Achievement Foundation presents the awards, a foundation established in 2003 by the province of BC to celebrate excellence in community service, enterprise, arts and humanities.
