The BC Child and Youth in Care Awards recognize the amazing achievements of children and youth in and from care from across the province.

Many of our MCFD and DAA staff have special relationships with children and youth in care – or formerly in care -- and their families and care providers.  If you know an amazing young person between the ages of 6 and 24 you’d like to nominate, please send in your nomination  by April 15, 2016.
