City of Kamloops, Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc recipients of Reconciliation Award

The City of Kamloops and Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc are recipients of the second British Columbia Reconciliation Award.

Presented by the Officer of the Lieutenant Governor of BC, the award recognizes six individuals and organizations who have demonstrated leadership, integrity, respect and commitment to furthering reconciliation.

“The relationship we have built with the City of Kamloops is fostering meaningful connections and dialogue leading to initiatives that have had a great benefit to both organizations,” said Kúkpi7 Rosanne Casimir.

“We are honoured to be recognized for charting this path together and hope to be an inspiration to other communities with similar potential for collaboration.”

Less than a month ago, Kamloops mayor Ken Christian and Kúkpi7 Rosanne Casimir accepted a national Collaboration Award of Excellence, which recognizes communities building relationships towards reconciliation.

“This year has been an important reminder that our relationship is one of ongoing reconciliation,” said mayor Ken Christian.

“We are honoured by the recognition we have received in this work and are encouraged to continue growing together.”

A official ceremony to present the award to recipients is being planned for the fall.

Others recipients include:

  • Kwuntiltunaat, Kim Baird (Tsawwassen)

  • T̓łaḵwagila, Chief Bill Cranmer (Alert Bay)

  • Brendan Eshom (Prince Rupert)

  • Atomic Cartoons in partnership with GBH (Vancouver)

  • DIVERSEcity - Surrey Local Immigration Partnership (Surrey)
