UBCM Community Excellence Award Winners

The Union of British Columbia Municipalities has presented its 2019 Community Excellence Awards at the UBCM annual convention in Vancouver. The awards showcase municipalities and regional districts that have implemented projects and programs that demonstrate excellence in meeting the purposes of local government in BC.

The awards are designed to profile promising practices and to create successful pathways and incentives for others to follow. UBCM has offered the Community Excellence Awards since 2004.

In all categories, winners offer a path for other local governments to follow, not only in British Columbia but also around the world, making communities more efficient, healthier and ultimately more liveable.
