BCIT Distinguished Awards Gala

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 Distinguished Awards will be postponed to a later date. We thank everyone for their past support of this marquee event. We will miss celebrating our Distinguished Award recipients and our shared accomplishments with you this year but will post further details about rescheduling when we are able. We hope you’ll re-join us then. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

The Distinguished Awards is the signature event for BCIT, where we celebrate outstanding leaders and high-achieving BCIT alumni. Watch the highlights of the 2019 Distinguished Awards gala below.

The BCIT Distinguished Awards celebrate the richness of BCIT by recognizing the recipients of our Honorary Doctorates of Technology, BCIT Distinguished Alumni Awards, and Outstanding Student Leadership Award. The recipients are outstanding leaders, making significant contributions both locally and around the globe.

Every year, the Distinguished Awards dinner brings together approximately 1,000 business and community leaders, partners, and alumni with BCIT’s leadership, faculty members, and students to celebrate the remarkable success of those who embody the values of BCIT.

For information at this event, please contact Ali Siemens, Manager, Alumni Relations at 604.432.8847 or
