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.
Nominations for the Land Awards open on March 14, 2016 and close on May 30, 2016.
All awards will be presented at the Land Awards Gala on October 21, 2016 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station, in Vancouver.
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.
