It’s a great opportunity for you to help someone earn provincial recognition for inclusion.

CLBC is requesting that each service provider, community agency and community council consider submitting one nomination for a self advocate, family member, employer or group that has been important to your success this year.

Nominating someone is easy. You can do it online here.

A printable nomination form is also available online here.

Here is how you and your community benefit: for those who are selected as winners by the awards committee, CLBC will make a provincial announcement, organize a local event, and invite local media. Check out a photo gallery here to see last year’s nominees and community celebrations.

If you have nominated someone in the past and they didn’t win a WOW Award – nominate them again! This year we will highlight all nominated inclusion champions on our web site so that everyone is recognized.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to nominate someone today.

P.S. While we would like to receive a photo with your nomination, you can submit without a photo if it’s not possible.
