The Community Award is the cornerstone of BC Achievement’s mission to honour excellence and inspire achievement in the province of BC. The award recognizes the contributions of extraordinary British Columbians who build better, stronger, more resilient communities and shine as examples of dedication and service.

Notice from BC Achievement

In keeping with our commitment to healthy communities, BC Achievement will not hold its presentation ceremonies at this time and is exploring the opportunity to honour and celebrate awardees in new and powerful ways. On Monday, May 11th, BCAchievement launched the #shinethelightbc campaign to celebrate the 25 awardees of the 2020 Community Award.

I see people around me and I applaud them. Now is when we need people who have that feeling of community. It makes a difference in people’s lives.

Mary Anne Cooper, 2020 Community Award Recipient
