Honouring excellence of individuals, groups and organizations committed to furthering the principles of   reconciliation  

The Office of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, in partnership with BC Achievement Foundation, announced the recipients of the third British Columbia Reconciliation Award on July 12, 2023. Read the full press release here.

The BC 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.
