The British Columbia Community Achievement Awards celebrate British Columbians who go above and beyond in their dedication and service to others and who devote time and energy to making their communities more caring, dynamic, beautiful, healthy, and unique. They inspire by their example.

- Community volunteerism
- Sports and recreation
- Youth or seniors' leadership
Note that neither the nominations nor the awards are limited to these suggested categories.
