Land Awards Program
The awards celebrate and honour the non-profit organizations, private companies, and government bodies behind the initiatives, as well as highlighting the dynamic, forward-thinking people who make it all happen—leaders in creating more resilient, healthy communities and natural environments, and making BC a great place to live.
There are three Land Awards, which recognize the achievement of organizations in the non-profit, public and private sectors. There is also a Land Champion Award, which recognizes an individual’s achievements.
Each year, REFBC produces short videos about the Land Champion and the Land Awards finalists in each category – non-profit, public, and private. Past videos are available on REFBC’s YouTube channel.
