2016 Citizens of the Year BiosThe 2016 Citizens of the Year

The Citizens of the Year award is given to those who have gone above and beyond in community volunteerism and philanthropy.

Whether it be giving of their time, talent, expertise, or just being a good advocate, all of these play a role in making Prince George the wonderful community it is.

The Citizens of the Year Gala is a major fundraiser for the Prince George Community Foundation, which uses its permanent endowment funds to support organizations involved in health, sports, recreation, education, arts, culture, social services, and the environment.

This year an arms-length committee have chosen five outstanding individuals to represent the Foundation and community as a whole as the Citizens of the Year.
