Request a Proclamation
Proclamations are ceremonial documents issued and signed by the Mayor to recognise the value and importance of a person, event, campaign, or organisation for a certain day, week, or month.
The decision to issue proclamations is based on the recognition the Mayor represents all citizens. A proclamation acknowledges the commitment of individuals and organisations within Prince George whose efforts enhance the community.
Proclamations do not constitute a personal or civic endorsement.
Proclamations may be issued:
- To an individual or organisation residing within the boundaries of the City of Prince George that has achieved national or international distinction or whose significant contribution to the community deserves recognition.
- To artistic, athletic, historical, and cultural celebrations held within the boundaries of the City of Prince George.
- To charitable and non-profit fundraising events held within the boundaries of the City of Prince George.
- As a special recognition/honour on the Mayor's recommendation.
Proclamations will NOT be issued:
- For matters that are politically or religiously motivated or represent individual conviction.
- For campaigns, events, or activities that are contrary to the City of Prince George's policies or bylaws.
- To individuals or organisations that espouse discrimination, hatred, violence, or racism.
- To individuals or organisations that are not directly related to the City of Prince George.
- For events or activities intended for profit-making purposes.
All proclamation text is subject to approval by the Office of the Mayor and modifications to the text may be necessary in order for text to be approved. Once text has been approved, an electronic copy of the document will be sent to the requester and posted on the City website.
The City will not incur any expenses relating to the advertising or promotion of a proclamation unless a City department initiates the proclamation. Recipients are responsible for the promotion of the proclamation and organisation of related activities for all associated costs.
An organisation does not have exclusive rights to the day, week, or month of their proclamation.
A congratulatory letter or certificate may be considered as an alternative where the proclamation criteria has not been met.
