The Office of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, in partnership with the BC Achievement Foundation announced on June 14, 2022 the recipients of the second British Columbia Reconciliation Award. Read the full press release here.
The British Columbia Reconciliation Award draws inspiration from the work of the Honourable Steven Point [Xwĕ lī qwĕl tĕl], 28th Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, and a founder of the Award. His hand-carved red cedar canoe, Shxwtitostel, currently on display at the BC Legislature buildings, was created as a symbol of reconciliation, with the understanding that “we are all in the same canoe” and must “paddle together” to move forward.
The recording of the ceremony honouring the 2021 & 2022 recipients is available here.
