The Community Excellence Awards recognize and celebrate UBCM member first nations, regional districts and municipalities that have implemented projects or programs that go above and beyond in meeting the purposes of local government in BC. The awards are intended to showcase outstanding initiatives, and share them with other members to implement in their own communities.
Applications for this program have closed until 2023.
Applications are only open to UBCM members, including local government and First Nation members. Members may submit one application per category.
The four categories are:
- Excellence in Governance
- Excellence in Service Delivery
- Excellence in Asset Management

The UBCM President's Committee will also present one community with the Presidents Committee Choice Award. This award recognize an outstanding, unique and/or special project from all the submissions received.
