Appointments to the order are made annually to the most outstanding British Columbians. To be considered for 2023, nominations and letters of support for the Order of British Columbia must be received by Tuesday, April 11, 2023, at the Honours and Awards Secretariat office: [email protected]

Criteria

Any resident of B.C. or former long-term resident who has demonstrated outstanding achievement, excellence or distinction in a field of endeavour provincewide is eligible to be nominated. Fields of endeavour may include community leadership, business, labour, industry, art, sports, volunteer service, professions and other occupations.

Federal, provincial and municipal elected representatives are not eligible for appointment to the order while they remain in office. A person may not be appointed to the order posthumously.

Nominations

Anyone can nominate a person whom they feel is worthy of this acknowledgment and honour. Appointments will be made by the lieutenant governor in council on the recommendation of the advisory council, which is an independent council chaired by the chief justice of British Columbia. The head of the order is the lieutenant governor of B.C. 

Insignia description
