Marking the 150th Anniversary of the Province Joining Confederation
2021 was a momentous year for the Province of British Columbia as it marked its 150th Anniversary since joining Confederation. However, it was also a year filled with substantial challenges during a global pandemic which have also included extreme weather conditions including the floods. "It is during times of adversity that we also come across moments of shimmering hope, flashes of humanity, and instances of coordination and cooperation based on shared values and common goals" said Co-Founder Ghalib Abdulla during the Citizenship Awards Ceremony.
The evening showcased residents of British Columbia who demonstrated citizenship and were at the frontlines during the global crisis to carry out essential work to ensure our country’s progress.
Former Citizenship Judge Gerald Pash from Victoria, BC delivered the keynote address. It was followed by the Presentation of Recipients of the CFC Citizenship Awards. The event concluded with a Citizenship Oath Reaffirmation Ceremony led by Dr. Marie Delorme.
