2016 British Columbia Multicultural Award nominations
Nominate a multicultural champion. YOU are encouraged to nominate individuals, organizations, or businesses whose exceptional work in their communities promotes inclusion and cultural diversity.
The Government of British Columbia, with advice and support from the Province’s Multicultural Advisory Council, organizes the British Columbia Multicultural Awards to honour and celebrate British Columbia’s cultural diversity.
British Columbians have until Sept. 26, 2016, to nominate individuals, organizations or businesses to receive a British Columbia Multicultural Award. The awards will be presented at the British Columbia Multicultural Awards ceremony during British Columbia’s Multiculturalism Week in November.
Five categories are open for nomination: individual, business, organization, youth, and multicultural excellence in government. Award recipients in the first four categories will receive $5,000 to be donated to a non-profit organization of their choice to further support the work of multiculturalism in the province. All award recipients will take home a trophy.
