But it’s always been about more than the individual. It’s about understanding and investing in the communities that carry them, the people and places that make up our province. Every one of our recipients is a conduit for change. The effects of their work rippling outward, building momentum while impacting countless lives. BC Achievement programming sparks a movement that captures the best of BC and carves a path forward for others to follow.
