The Royal Canadian Humane Association for British Columbia and the Yukon recognizes Canadians who have risked their lives to save others.
The awards are issued on these guidelines: Gold is reserved for deeds of bravery at the cost of the hero’s life; silver and bronze medals are awarded when the rescuer has shown extraordinary disregard for personal safety in saving or attempting to save the life of another; honorary certificates are awarded to commemorate a rescue attempt where the risk is not as great.
If you are aware of rescues that warrant recognition please forward information to our office. All of the information we receive is kept confidential.
the Lieutenant Governor will be recognizing approximate 40 provincial heroes.
