2022 WOW Award Nominations Launched

The CLBC WOW (Widening Our World) Awards are being officially launched today with a call for nominations by September 7, 2022.

The WOW Awards create opportunities for people across the province to shine a light on the person, organization, agency, community partner or employer that is making your community a place where people of all abilities are valued and respected.

I am asking everyone for help in making sure the people, families, service providers and partners you work with know about this opportunity. You can do this by sharing the nomination form or telling people about it in conversations.

How People can Nominate Someone

Nominating someone is easy. People can fill out an online nomination form here, or print a form here and mail it to the address shown on the form.

If people have questions about WOW, they can write a note to the WOW inbox at

Nominations open on August 2, 2022 and must be submitted by September 7, 2022 at 5 p.m. Award recipients will be chosen in September by an evaluation committee of self advocates, family members and CLBC staff, and recognized through presentation events in their communities during Community Inclusion Month in October 2022 (or later if needed).

I appreciate your help in spreading the word about this unique opportunity to recognize and celebrate inclusion champions in your community. Thank you.
