The Community Service Awards program was created in 2019 to recognize and honour outstanding contributions and achievements of groups, organizations and individuals in six categories:
• Spirit of Pitt Meadows Award (recognizing Outstanding Resident of the Year)
• Against the Odds Achievement Award
• Community Service Award
• Community Service Youth Awards (18 and under)
• Business of the Year Award

“It’s important that positive actions from subtle acts of kindness to major community efforts are recognized,” says Chief Administrative Officer Mark Roberts. “We encourage everyone to nominate those who go above and beyond to make our community a better place to live.”
Nominations are open until October 1, 2023. More information, including nomination criteria and the online nomination form can be found at pittmeadows.ca/awards.
