The Honoring Our Elders award was created to recognize the amazing Elders in Friendship Centre communities throughout BC. It is an annual award that will be presented to one male Elder and one female Elder each year at the BCAAFC AGM.
Each Friendship Centre in BC will be invited to nominate one male and one female Elder. Nominations should include a one-page application and 2 letters of reference describing the role of the Elder in the Friendship Centre and the ways in which the Elder has made a positive impact in the community.
