2019 marks the first year for the Spirit Bear Award. Named in honour of Spirit Bear, who is a symbol of reconciliation and equality for kids, this award will go to a group of young people who demonstrate their collective commitment to reconciliation and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.

A child and youth panel will select the recipient of the award. The group of young people selected will receive $500 to use as they would like toward their activities or simply to celebrate!

  • Complete nomination form (see mailing and online forms below)
