*** Change to Submission Deadline for 2013 ***
January 25, 2013 — The Honours and Awards Secretariat has recently undergone a process to identify ways in which to improve the nomination process for the Order of British Columbia. One of the suggestions was to make the cut off date a day rather than a specific date thereby eliminating any issues where the date may have fallen on a weekend. Submissions must be received by the first Friday in March to be considered this year (Friday, March 1, 2013) .
