Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training Shirley Bond, on behalf of Premier Christy Clark, today presented Judith Armstrong and Nick Marsden with the province’s newest honour, the Medal of Good Citizenship.

Launched in July 2015 by Premier Clark, the prestigious Medal of Good Citizenship recognizes individuals who, through exceptional long-term service, have made outstanding contributions to their communities without expectation of remuneration or reward. The medal reflects their generosity, service, acts of selflessness and contributions to community life. Nominations for the Medal of Good Citizenship are accepted year-round.

Armstrong and Marsden, both Victoria residents, received the medal for their decades of dedication to British Columbians with developmental disabilities. They have helped create joy and life enhancing experiences for both people with disabilities and inspired hundreds of volunteers to work alongside with them.
