Nominations for the province's highest recognition of excellence and lifetime achievement - the Order of British Columbia - are now being accepted for 2013.
"The Order of British Columbia is the province's most prestigious accolade and is an official part of the Canadian honours system," said B.C. Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon. "It avails us the opportunity to publicly recognize the good works of those in our communities who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to make all our lives better."
Any person or group is welcome to nominate a deserving individual as candidate. Nomination forms are available from any Service BC Centre and at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca. The deadline is March 1.
