Community Excellence Awards

Community Excellence

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.

Videos of the projects from the short-listed candidates are available on UBCM’s YouTube account.
