Celebrating People & Projects That Made Health Care Better!

Our BC Quality Awards celebrate projects within the five areas of care as well as four inspiring individuals, including patients, caregivers and health care professionals.

Now in their 13th year, the awards help us recognize and raise the profile of improvements to the quality of care in BC.

The categories for the awards evolved in 2021 to align with the updated BC Health Quality Matrix which we published in 2020 – this included adding a ninth category in recognition of a new area of care, Optimizing the Early Years.

Nominations for the 2023 BC Quality Awards Are Open!

Get to know the award categories to identify which best suits your nominee. Underneath each category’s description, you’ll find information about what to include in your nomination as well as its scoring criteria. When you’ve selected your category, view our step-by-step instructions for submitting a nomination. If you have questions, check out our FAQs or contact us at awards@bcpsqc.ca.
