British Columbia Medal of Good Citizenship



British Columbia Medal of Good Citizenship


Provincial honours are a memorable and distinctive way for the government of British Columbia to thank and pay special tribute to those British Columbian's whose lives exemplify excellence and achievement of the highest order.

Any Canadian citizen who is a current or former long-term resident of British Columbia is eligible for nomination or the BC Medal of Good Citizenship. No elected federal, provincial or municipal representative may be awarded the Medal while such person remains in office. The Medal is not awarded for acts of bravery. Self-nominations will not be accepted. There is no age limit—youth nominations are welcome.

Nominations are accepted year-round.
