A call for Rossland’s best

Nominations are now being accepted for 2014 Order of British Columbia honour and Rossland needs to put its best forward.

Nominations for the province’s highest recognition of excellence and lifetime achievement – the Order of British Columbia for 2014 – are now being accepted.

Any person or group is welcome to nominate a deserving individual as candidate for appointment to the Order of British Columbia.

Nomination forms are available from:

* the Honours and Awards Secretariat office at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca (250 387-1616), or submit online at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca/nominations

Nominations and letters of support for the Order of British Columbia must be received by the first Friday in March (March 7, 2014) at the secretariat’s office (1st floor, 548 Michigan Street, Victoria, V8V 1S2) or via email at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca, to be considered this year.

Nominations received after this will be included in the selection process for the next year.

A dinner and special ceremony of recognition will be hosted later this year by Lt.-Gov. Guichon at Government House for recipients and invited guests.

The Order of British Columbia was established in 1989. Since its inception, 345 British Columbians have been honoured.
