2016 B.C. Community Achievers Announced

Premier Christy Clark and Keith Mitchell, chair of the British Columbia Achievement Foundation, named this year’s recipients of the B.C. Community Achievement Awards.

"All British Columbians are inspired by those who lead by example, lending their time and talents in their community," said Clark. "Thank you to the 2016 recipients; your commitment and generosity make a real difference in people’s lives."

"We recognize individuals today who have made a significant contribution to their community either as volunteers or in the course of their work," said Mitchell. "We are privileged to showcase and celebrate the achievements of these exceptional British Columbians."

An independent committee selects the recipients of the British Columbia Community Achievement Awards. The 2016 selection committee members are Mayor Henry Braun of the City of Abbotsford, Mayor Carol Leclerc of the City of Terrace and past recipients, Victoria Dobbyn of Roberts Creek, Daphne Goode of Victoria and Christopher Seguin of Kamloops.

The recipients of the 2016 awards will be recognized in a formal presentation ceremony at Government House in Victoria on May 25, 2016. Each recipient will receive a certificate and a medallion designed by B.C. artist Robert Davidson.
