Outstanding Canadians on the Peninsula Committee

White Rock Outstanding Canadians on the Peninsula Legacy Program is the primary program for recognizing the contributions of citizens in making White Rock a successful, vibrant and harmonious community.

The number of recipients is 1-3 people per year based on nominations received.

The announcement of successful nominees will be made during Canada Day festivities on 1 July of every year.

A selection committee of at least three (3) people will be made up of a citizen appointed by Council, a City Council member, and a representative from the White Rock Museum and Archives (staff or Board Member). The selection process will focus on the contributions the nominee has made on the establishment, success, health, wellbeing and/or livability of White Rock. Decisions of the selection committee shall be final.

Nominations will come from the general public. Nominees must either currently reside on the Semiahmoo Peninsula or have resided on the Semiahmoo Peninsula in the past.

The public will be notified of the nomination process and must have nominees submitted by 22 May 2015 for inclusion into the program.

Nominations must be submitted with a completed nomination form [DOC - 749 KB] and an accompanying biography of the nominee of approximately 250 words.

Nomination forms and the announcement of successful recipients will be made available on the City of White Rock website. Nomination forms will also be available at City of White Rock facilities.

The lead on this program is the City of White Rock Communications Coordinator who will manage the program, develop public notices, support materials and media relations and will include the White Rock Museum and Archives staff for historical nominees and support materials.

The White Rock Living Legacies Book will be housed in the City of White Rock City Hall and will be updated with new recipients on an annual basis.

Individuals who are awarded the “Freedom of the City” will automatically be inductees in the White Rock Living Legacies Book.
