Nominate someone helping people to stay connected and safe for a special COVID edition WOW Award!

Every year, the Community Living BC (CLBC) Widening Our World (WOW) Awards celebrate British Columbians who are making their communities more inclusive.

This year, we are honouring the courageous people who are helping people stay connected and included during COVID-19. We want to hear the stories about how people have showed courage, leadership and creativity to keep individuals connected during COVID-19.

We know people are using many innovative ways to stay in touch, to create friendships and a sense of belonging.

Whether it is an employer, teacher, support worker, community member, self advocate, or anyone else who is making sure people stay connected while staying safe, we want you to tell us about it!

All you need to do is answer the questions in the nomination form found below and send it to us by:
