Community Excellence Awards

Community Excellence

Nominations are not currently being accepted.

The Community Excellence Awards recognize and celebrate UBCM member First Nations, regional districts, and local governments 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.

The awards are open to all local government and First Nation members of UBCM; one application per category. The four categories are:

  • Excellence in Governance
  • Excellence in Service Delivery
  • Excellence in Asset Management
  • Excellence in Sustainability

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